I Admit It. I Read The Harvard Business Review.

Contrary to what most people in my “profession” think, a lot of business thinkers are pretty awesome. Case in point. Now, they may not have everything down pat. For example, back in my day, business students were sometimes required to wear business casual clothing. But, I mean, it’s not like we can’t cross over disciplines and discuss things, though. My own history is totally interdisciplinary. That’s likely the toughest work to do. Sometimes I was all over the place. But I think I brought some outside ideas to philosophy and some philosophy ideas elsewhere. Typically, when we think of business in philosophy, we think of ethics, business ethics to be precise. Upon reflection, I think this is probably a maladjusted way of proceeding. Sure, businesses need ethics and whatnot. But so does philosophy. It’s not like we have the field cornered on these things. What I admire about business thinkers like those at HBR is the the precision of thought, critical thinking, care of work and, often, care for the consumer.
