    Using Philosophical Methods to explore purposeful innovation in polycrisis.

    session#126 – 9 August 12-2pm, Marriott, Lakeview room

    The purpose of this workshop is to explore how philosophical methods can broaden the sight of management research into the topic area of purposeful innovation in polycrisis.

    The workshop is designed to encourage participants to imagine ways in which specific philosophical methods (e.g., thought experiments, axiological analysis, critical theory, discourse ethics, phenomenology, and existentialism) can extend management studies to help meet social and environmental challenges and face polycrisis.

    Three scholars giving examples of philosophical methods will kickstart our workshop: Helet Botha (University of Michigan-Dearborn, USA) will do this for existentialist philosophy; Mollie Painter (Nottingham Trent University, UK) for process philosophy; and Marian Eabrasu (EM Normandie Business School, France) will talk about using counter-factual analysis.

    The two key outcomes we envisage for this workshop are: a list of new research ideas inspired by the application of specific philosophical methods to responsible innovation issues of relevance to management and organizations; and, the further development of the Philosophical Methods for Management research network, aiming to pursue these new ideas.
