The author presents a view in which the concept of “nationhood” and its relevance to management play a central role. In the contemporary world two polarised views emerge from this context, namely nationalism and globalism. The nationalist view seeks to emphasise one nation above others and often demands unrealistic changes. The globalist view oversimplifies the situation, often ignoring the realities and validity of nationhood thus adding weight to the nationalist argument and devaluing the value of nations. The author believes that the application of a spiritual understanding of nations has the potential to enable us to find the appropriate middle ground between nationalism and globalisation. This will release us to lead our societies into a balanced and just future together.
