Spirituality in Management Theories: A Perspective from India
- S. N. Balagangadhara
- … show all 1 hide
In Chap. 4, Balagangadhara explores two ways of marrying economic and management theories to religion and spirituality: the “Western, Judeo-Christian approach” and “an Indian, heathen” one. He draws on observation and experience to explore human beings’ limitless desires, greed, needs, and wants in terms of these two worldviews and corresponding modes of functioning. He then proposes an alternative view that opens up the potential for the happiness and fulfillment that is the potential of each human being.
