50 reflections on practical philosophy from the world’s leading thinkers.

Thinkers50 on Philosophy@Work

"Original thinkers on management are in short supply. That’s why Anders Indset is a breath of fresh and philosophical air. Philosophy@Work is a Smörgåsbord of interesting insights to encourage and enable people to make use of philosophy in business”.


Philosophical concepts to power your business and life.


For decades management has learned lessons and absorbed wisdom from an array of disciplines: psychology, sociology, biology and more. But philosophy and the practical wisdom it embodies has been overlooked. No longer. Anders Indset is on a mission to bring philosophy into every organisations of our times.


This book will offer you 50 unique reflections on practical philosophy and on how to apply philosophy in business and leadership. It will be a comprehensive compilation of articles, interviews, and essays that brings together philosophical insights from some of the world’s leading business thinkers including: Don Tapscott, Marshall Goldsmith, Subir Chowdhury, Anil Gupta, Haiyan Wang, Stew Friedman, Gianpiero Petriglieri, Santiago Iniguez, Erica Dhawan, Mark Esposito, Dorie Clark and many more from the world's leading thinkers brought together in one book.


The starting point to a world of practical applied philosophy, a first insight into the beginning of a new era.

Anders Indset, author of Wild Knowledge, is one of the world’s leading Business Philosophers offering a new perspective on the “art of thinking“. By bridging the philosophy of the past with the technology and science of tomorrow, he shows how leaders can cope with the 21st century. His 10 postulates of change provide a framework to cope with our fast-paced world.

Norwegian-born, Indset is the founder of Sa. | shapingwork academy, the first executive academy based on practical philosophy, offering a radical new approach to corporate education by pairing the “best-of-breed” practices from leadership, management and execution with philosophy. He is a visiting guest lecturer at leading international business schools, an advisory board member of German Tech Entrepreneurship Center (GTEC) and a trusted advisor for Global CEOs and leading politicians.

His inspiring keynotes, covering topics such as leadership, technology, creativity and change, are valued for their unconventional thinking and rock star attitude.
