Abstract

In this chapter, we argue that one of the reasons of resisting the temptation of teaching what ‘we could do and perhaps should not do’ (Eco, 2014 [1980], 107) in university Business Schools is the emphasis on the application of theories to the exclusion of theorizing. We argue that Business Schools in the future should engage in and contribute to the intellectual practice of academic theorizing and not merely to be places of reproduction, application and enumeration of theories.
