Overview

The Character of the Manager is a sustained argument advancing a transformed conception of the character of the manager as wise steward. If we listen carefully to the warnings of the philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre, we are awakened to a series of problems raised when thinking of the manager as office executive. MacIntyre has hinted that we need a new sort of manager, but his work has not gone far enough to propose and build up a transformed manager. To take up that task, this volume proposes a way to re-conceive both the activity of managing and the excellences of character and intellect needed to manage well. Retrieving two ancient characters, the 'steward' and the 'person of practical wisdom,' this volume is an argument for how moral philosophy might help bring about a transformed conception of the character of the manager.
