About this blog

I’m an educator fascinated by philosophy, and a philosopher fascinated by education. I work in a management school at a UK university, providing executive education, which also awards graduate and doctoral degrees, and runs a full programme of management research. Cranfield University has specialisms in science, engineering, technology, as well as management.

I’m fearful that the discipline of executive education, and business schools generally, don’t think deeply enough about why they do what they do: so this blog is an attempt to add some piquant philosophical seasoning to what is sometimes a rather bland dish.

I’d be keen to hear from you if you’re struggling with a similar listlessness, or if you’re dissatisfied with the executive education you’re getting, or, like me, think that business schools have so much more to offer the students, executives, scholars, organisations, and the societies in which they operate.
