Présentation

 The impact of spirituality (i.e. religion) has been widely studied in a macro-economic and -societal context, since the founding writings of Max Weber (1930). The main idea is that spirituality significantly influences societies’ development by the transmission of a system of implicit or explicit values that provides a frame to the actor, by giving sense to its actions (Gundolf & Filser, 2013). However, the effect of spirituality on performance at a national level remains controversial, as stressed by Cavalcanti et al. (2007): ‘‘We attribute the fact that Weber’s thesis continues to be controversial nearly 100 years after its conception to the failure of social sciences to adequately quantify the effects of religion on the aggregate performance of economies’’ (Cavalcanti et al. 2007, p. 106).

Even if the underlying question remains unresolved in the macro-economic context, the question may be of relevance at the enterprise’s level. Underlying questions might be:

  • Does spirituality affects an enterprise’s performance?
  • Does spirituality influence an entrepreneur’s behavior?
  • If yes, how? Etc.

The answers to these questions will probably be numerous and highly dependent on the context. And even if spirituality is a basic element of each culture, it remains obscure to which levels it directly impacts human behavior. As underlined by Chan-Serafin et al. (2013) and Audretsch, Boente, and Tamvada (2013), even if the topic is of great importance, there is little grounded research on spirituality in the context of enterprises.

One thing seems to be clear: the topic is gaining relevance, as shown by Gundolf and Filser (2013) in their citation analysis. The number of publications in business research journals has grown exponentially since 2000. This is also emphasized by the fact that the Academy of Management created a Management, Spirituality, and Religion Interest Group. As the importance of the topic is growing, there is a great need for transversal, intercultural studies exploring this phenomenon in the specific entrepreneurial context. Substantial efforts must still be done (Chan-Serafin, et al., 2013). And although a small body of literature has started to explore this domain, the results are equivocal (Audretsch, et al., 2013).
