Following Reason : A Theory and Strategy for Rational Leadership, Paperback / softback Book

Following Reason : A Theory and Strategy for Rational Leadership Paperback / softback

Part of the Leadership: Research and Practice series


Throughout history, humanity has regularly followed anti-rational figures and forces: demagogic rulers, perverted deities, exploitative economic systems, and so on.

Such leadership and followership have wrought all kinds of oppression and conflict.

What if this pattern could be altered? What if society were led by Reason instead? Prompted by Cicero's exhortation to "follow reason as leader as though it were a god", Following Reason: A Theory and Strategy for Rational Leadership explores this intriguing and potentially transformative possibility.

Manolopoulos uniquely blends leadership psychology with a deep understanding of philosophical reasoning theory to show how leaders can bravely reimagine and reconstruct society.

The book retraces leadership mis-steps in history, and proposes a more "logicentric" theory of leadership, built on compelling philosophical axioms and arguments.

Following Reason emphasizes the weight of philosophy and cognition in leadership, and advocates for a diverse network that can create, uphold, and implement a blueprint for a better global society.

This wide-ranging and timely book is ideal for leadership, management, and philosophy students at undergraduate and graduate levels.
