Philosophy of Management Conference | Webster University

Philosophy of Management International Conference 2017

Gateway Campus of Webster University
St. Louis, Missouri
July 13-16, 2017

Philosophy of Management 2017 is the twelfth in an annual series of conferences open to all. It will be of special interest to philosophers, management researchers, management teachers and students, practicing managers, and consultants.

The conference, sponsored by the journal Philosophy of Management, is normally held at St. Anne’s College, Oxford. This will be only the second one held in the US, the first having been at DePaul University in Chicago in 2014, under the leadership of Pat Werhane and Ed Freeman. We will continue to follow the successful model of unhurried presentation and discussion of papers, high-quality interaction and feedback, and ample opportunities for networking and informal conversations.

Meals and refreshments at or near the conference site are included in the registration fee. Participation will be limited to 75 attendees.

Papers may address any area in which philosophy and management intersect, from any cultural or philosophical tradition.
