    God and Modernity in Management Studies. A Case of Theological Social Theory.Enrico Beltramini - 2019 - Philosophy of Management 18 (3):331-345.
    This article examines how theology and social science can contribute to the specific task of talking about God in management without compromising the integrity of the Triune God. To talk about God in management studies initially requires a discussion on the character of modernity and about whether modernity is absence or transformation of religious forms; to follow is an examination of the governing assumptions operating in social theory from a religious perspective. The conclusion is that without the correct hermeneutics, what (...)

    Evil and roboethics in management studies.Enrico Beltramini - 2019 - AI and Society 34 (4):921-929.
    In this article, I address the issue of evil and roboethics in the context of management studies and suggest that management scholars should locate evil in the realm of the human rather than of the artificial. After discussing the possibility of addressing the reality of evil machines in ontological terms, I explore users’ reaction to robots in a social context. I conclude that the issue of evil machines in management is more precisely a case of technology anthropomorphization.

    Management in Conversation with Agamben. A Governmental-Political Interpretation of Modern Management.Enrico Beltramini - 2022 - Philosophy of Management 22 (2):187-203.
    In this article, I place management theory in conversation with Giorgio Agamben’s political theology with the dual scope of offering (a) a critical examination of the Agambenian interpretation of management, and (b) an application of such interpretation to illuminate and eventually explain the nature of some decisive and persistent limitations of the discipline. The main argument is that Agamben’s theological genealogy of economy transforms the discourse on management from a matter of value to one of control. In the first section, (...)

    Philosophy of Management Between Scientism and Technology.Enrico Beltramini - 2019 - Philosophy and Technology 32 (3):535-548.
    This article addresses the difficulty in pursuing a philosophical engagement with management without falling into the trap of scientism. It also explores the option to turn management theorists away from science to seek insights from technology. The article is organized in four parts: a preliminary discussion on management from a philosophical viewpoint, a crucial distinction between philosophy of management as a mode of inquiry and a field of study, an analysis of the risk of scientism in the current philosophical work (...)

    The Government of Evil Machines: an Application of Romano Guardini’s Thought on Technology.Enrico Beltramini - 2021 - Scientia et Fides 9 (1):257-281.
    In this article I propose a theological reflection on the philosophical assumptions behind the idea that intelligent machine can be governed through ethical protocols, which may apply either to the people who develop the machines or to the machines themselves, or both. This idea is particularly relevant in the case of machines’ extreme wrongdoing, a wrongdoing that becomes an existential risk for humankind. I call this extreme wrong-doing, ‘evil.’ Thus, this article is a theological account on the philosophical assumptions behind (...)
