This communication addresses the question of the possible contribution of management teachers to the reification process realized by the management systems operating in all branches of management (management control, HRM, marketing, etc.). Drawing on a sample of three French management control textbooks, it suggests that teaching does not analyze and deconstruct reification (which could mitigate its damaging effects) but adds to reification. It also suggests alternative teaching paths and reflects on the difficulties encountered to implement these suggestions.
