Humanistic Management


About the Series

Humanistic Management draws together the concepts of social business, sustainability, social entrepreneurship, business ethics, conscious capitalism and cooperative capitalism to present a new humanistically-based research paradigm. This new paradigm challenges the prevailing neo-liberal ‘economistic’ approach that dominates twentieth-century management theory and practice, and instead emphasises the need to protect human dignity and wellbeing as well as economic drivers.
