Abstract :
This article outlines the current debate about the relationship between spirituality and business in the business and management literature, and uses Buirrell and Morgan’s paradigms to contextualize that debate. It then draws on Bernard Lonergan’s work to bridge the chasm between opposing camps, and, building on Lonergan, examines the “flatland” state of the social sciences and Daniel Helminiak’s proposal to introduce a multi-leveled approach to social scientific study. The article concludes with some research implications for the field of spirituality at work.
