Critical Acclaim
‘A century has passed since Cassirer first called for all of Western philosophy – largely undisturbed from Euclid until Einstein's Theory of Relativity – to be tested anew. Few concepts have contributed so practically and effectively to a complex systems understanding of organisations and society, than stakeholder theory. Such an outcome might easily be congruent with strands of Ed Freeman’s openly pragmatist approach. In this encyclopedic, revised companion volume and through 81 expert, scholarly entries, Jacob Dahl Rendtorff and Maria Bonnafous-Boucher marshal a collective tour de force. This book presents an effective deconstruction of the manifold, complex, and inseparable stakeholder themes that overwrite defunct, neo-classical logic, agency theory and shareholder primacy. Compelling and comprehensive stakeholder reference material for scholars, students and professionals.’
