As already mentioned earlier, I am a firm believer that if we would like to progress the understanding of purposefull human activity (like management, innovation, etc) we have to investigate much further (or should I say start investigating) the consciousness issue. I share this idea with many others, just to mention the noetic society. For those interested in this issue (and I hope it are many), I would like to suggest three interesting websites (of which I have added two to my internet site links on the reading page of this blog).
The Columbia University "Mind Brain Behavior" initiative is a multidisciplinary project investigating gene function, brain wiring and behavior. The Mind and Reality blog sheds light on what is going on in Indo-Tibetan mind science today. And the third interesting site is the one of the Mind and Life Institute. Amongst others, this site informs about the clinical use of meditation.
I would welcome to see more of this in management research and management school curricula. Eventually, we might get a better understanding of human behavior, what management is all about.
