This article proposes turn-taking as a way to understand how European management scholarship opens up to societal phenomena as play, critique, artistry, and aesthetics co-creating business realities. European management scholarship rests on contributions, still mostly under the Anglo-Saxon publication radar, of people and platforms favoring un-scholastic scholarship where art and philosophy perform reality-checks. Such scholarship shares the ambitions of “speculative philosophy” turning away from “speculative fiction” preaching and defending preconceived ideals. A recent Carnegie Report criticizes the Business School for building speculative castles in the sky. European scholarship might rethink it as an Art School where managerial action is seen as philosophizing in a speculative realism-mode.
