Spiritual Intelligence at Work: Meaning, Metaphor, and Morals
Moses L. Pava, Patrick Primeaux
Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2004 - Business & Economics - 259 pages
This volume contains articles and essays from internationally renowned authors and thinkers about the relationship among business, business ethics, religion, and spirituality. The authors included in this book represent multiple perspectives including Christian, Jewish, Hindu, philosophical, and others. This volume will be of interest to both academics and business practitioners who promote a contemporary re-integration of business and religious values and for those concerned about the dangers inherent in this project. In the end, this volume suggests that in a pluralistic and democratic society the only justification for going back home again to traditional religious texts is to help us all move forward together. If the real reason we're invoking religion in the public sphere is to strengthen our own religious communities and our own identities as members of particular religious communities, we are making a fundamental error in judgement. The goal of a legitimate religiously grounded business ethics can and must be the desire to critique, enhance, and strengthen the democratic values and institutions of society including business. These values include noncoercion, transparency, equal rights, pluralism, compromise, individual and communal responsibility, and many others.

Es interesante notar como el autor reconoce que mientras mas se habla de espiritualidad en le trabajo es cuando menos se ve o se pratica en la realidad dejando todo a una mera teoria en donde la practica no se encuentra en la realidad.
