This introduction to Learnable Theory and Analysis leverages several contributions that Italian researchers and research centers have provided in Philosophy, Linguistics and Neurosciences. Contributions which appear particularly relevant in the construction of a solid link between Philosophy and Business Studies. A link which has the ambition to guide both Academics and Practitioners of Management across the tumultuous waters of Philosophy, Linguistics and Neurosciences, whose investigations the authors here present and develop in view of new opportunities of deeper understanding and broader interventions. Contributions of scholars such as Giacomo Rizzolatti and Silvio Ceccato, as well as the work of others who have been following their tracks and, in some cases, even drastically reconsidered their propositions, are here highly leveraged and celebrated together with Roy Bhaskar’s revolutionary ontological framework and George Lakoff’s and Mark Johnson’s enlightening studies on metaphors.
