|Description:||Conference on the Practical Wisdom for Management and Economics in the Buddhist Tradition|
|Location:||Bangkok, Thammasat Business School, Thailand|
|Subject:||EABIS (The Academy of Business in Society) and Yale University are organizing a series of conferences on practical wisdom for management from the worlds spiritual and philosophical traditions, addressing the central question: How can we bring back the value of wisdom in management and management education as well as in economics? The conferences are, on each occasion, followed by a call for papers for a special issue of The Journal of Management Development and a book series. They are designed to bring together philosophers, theologians, economists, social sciences scholars, management scholars and business leaders to engage in reflection and dialogue and to find new grounding. For this conference, we welcome contributions from all traditions, schools, branches, streams or denominations of Buddhist thought as: Theravada, Mahayana including Chan Buddhism, Pure Land Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, Nichiren Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, Shingon, Tiantai (Tendai) Shinnyoen, Vajrayana and Nava Bauddha. Contributions should explore the nature and contemporary relevance of the Buddhist wisdom traditions for management practice, management education and economics.
