Pragmatic Inquiry in the Business Curriculum: Teaching Sustainability

What we propose in not a traditional panel discussion but a workshop on the program of “Pragmatic Inquiry” that is the basis for an exceptionally innovative program in “Sustainable Management” tested in leading business schools, such as Stanford, Kellogg, and Notre Dame. The program is unique not only for its use of pragmatism, especially that of Charles S. Peirce, as the theoretical foundation for its pedagogy, but in its integration of environmental and social sustainability—in other programs these are treated separately. Moreover, it applies principles of pragmatic inquiry specifically in the implementation of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education. Rather than merely lecturing about the program, the panelists propose to take session attendees through a series of exercises in pragmatic inquiry that are used in the program. It thus aims, in pragmatic fashion, to put pragmatism to work.
