Philosophy Retreat for Business Executives

  Retreat        01 – 03 November 2019       Boschendal Estate

Rediscover business thinking

Philosophical reflection has an invaluable role in professional decision-making. In a joint venture between USB and the Philosophy Department of Stellenbosch University, we invite you to our Philosophy Retreat for Business Executives at the historic Boschendal Wine Estate.

In keeping with the growing international trend of improving business decisions through philosophical reflection, the Retreat offers an intellectual adventure for those who want to grapple with big ideas and unsettling questions. Engage with diverse presentations ranging from brief talks to interactive sessions presented by academic thought leaders from both institutions – all of this in truly exquisite surroundings.

Programme topics include:

  • Thinking about thinking
  • Thinking about business and the economy
  • Thinking about artificial intelligence
  • Thinking about choices
  • Thinking about the good life
  • Thinking about justice
  • Thinking about climate change
