Human Development in Business

Humanism in Business Series


2012, 272 pages, ISBN: 9780230296824
Publishers: Palgrave Macmillan
Series: Humanism in Business Series
Full Citation: Human Development in Business, Mele, D. and Dierksmeier, C. (Eds.) (2012). Houndmills: Palgrave Macmillan

A significant voice in encouraging the theoretical development and practical implementation of humanistic management is Pope Benedict XVI. In his Encyclical Letter Caritas in Veritate published in 2009, he proposed a new humanistic synthesis to realign the economy with its social purpose.

The aim of this book is to interpret, comment and develop aspects of the Encyclical Letter which are significant for economic and business activity and contribute to humanistic management. The authors, specialists in their different fields, provide an interdisciplinary dialogue between their respective areas and the Encyclical. The first, theoretical, part of the book focuses on the relationship between ethics and economics to advance towards a holistic view of business and managerial activity. The second part is oriented more towards the practical and managerial aspects, and discusses how the Encyclical can contribute to more humanistic ways of management.
