THE RELEVANCE OF PHILOSOPHICAL THINKING AS AN EPISTEMOLOGICAL FOUNDATION IN THE MANAGEMENT SCIENCES
There are documents and a good number of intellectual productions that prolong the historical discussion on the foundations on which the managerial sciences are built. Why are there many managers who, being trained with formal studies, are bad in the exercise of their profession? Why are there other managers who, without scientific knowledge, or without having studied the profession, based on their empirical and intuitive skills, are good managers? What elements, aspects, approaches should be considered when improving the epistemic foundations of the managerial sciences? This production does not propose to eliminate, replace, or bias the foundations of the managerial sciences, especially management; rather, it proposes to complement the current bases along the lines of the references studied based on the epistemic foundations of management. More than anything else, it proposes a reflection on the main philosophers throughout history, and how their contributions could have a place in the practices and modern administrative thought.
