Laszlo Zsolnai (ed.) Spirituality and Ethics in Management. Springer, 2011. (This book may be available at: Springer)

The book is a collection of scholarly papers focusing on the role of spirituality and ethics in renewing the contemporary management praxis. The basic argument is that a more inclusive, holistic and peaceful approach to management is needed if business and political leaders are to uplift the environmentally degrading and socially disintegrating world of our age. The book uses diverse value-perspectives (Hindu, Catholic, Buddhist, and Humanist) and a variety of disciplines (philosophy, ethics, management studies, psychology, and organizational sciences) to extend traditional reflections on corporate purpose and focuses on a self-referential organizational-existential search for meaning, identity and success.  Contributions include papers by European SPES Forum founding members Luk Bouckaert, Laszlo Zsolnai, Josep Lozano, Mike Thompson, and Peter Pruzan.Contents and Introduction.pdf
