Description - Rethinking Management Education by Robert French
This text is a challenge to conventional thinking on management education and its strictly utilitarian relationship to management research and practice. The diverse contributions are all concerned to foster an understanding of management education which deals adequately with prevailing developments in management knowledge. Each one supports the view that a more complex, theoretically informed version of management education has a greater probability of providing managers with a more accurate account of organizational and commercial reality. Chapters address critical theory, feminism, post-structural work, neo-Weberism, environmentalism, psychoanalysis and classical traditions such as Plato to provide alternative views of management education as "education" rather than just a set of techniques and skills. All the contribuors are actively involved in developing new forms of management education in a wide range of institutions, and face the issues and problems of management education on a daily basis.
