Most students have prior exposure to philosophy and ethical models that can serve as a foundation for the need to incorporate multiple perspectives. Ethics applies different theories to address Socrates’s question of how we should act. The application of philosophical principles in teaching strategy and teaching strategy philosophically has multiple advantages including: a better appreciation of underlying values and motivation, increasing tolerance of ambiguity, and recognizing fundamental differences behind alternate perspectives. It also enables going beyond considering the feasibility and utility of a strategy to contemplate its propriety. Please join us in this highly interactive session in how great scholars teach strategy philosophically.
