“Original thinkers on management are in short supply. That’s why Anders Indset is a breath of fresh and philosophical air. Philosopy@Work is a Smörgåsbord of interesting insights to encourage and enable people to make use of philosophy in business”.

For decades management has learned lessons and absorbed wisdom from an array of disciplines: psychology, sociology, biology and more. But philosophy and the practical wisdom it embodies has been overlooked. No longer. Anders Indset is on a mission to bring philosophy into every organisations of our times.

This book will offer you 50 unique reflections on practical philosophy and on how to apply philosophy in business and leadership. It will be a comprehensive compilation of articles, interviews, and essays that brings together philosophical insights from some of the world’s leading business thinkers including: Don Tapscott, Marshall Goldsmith, Subir Chowdhury, Anil Gupta, Haiyan Wang, Stew Friedman, Gianpiero Petriglieri, Santiago Iniguez, Erica Dhawan, Mark Esposito, Dorie Clark and many more from the world’s leading thinkers brought together in one book.
