This communication addresses a recent debate about the relevance of using "management" as a model for human affairs. It shows how management and its ever expanding systems increasingly contribute to the worsening of ill-being at work, which leads to question the relevance of extending their scope of influence. The communication also evidences how management embodies Greek thought in terms of perception, action and time. Chinese thought, which develops radically different views on these matters, offers insightful perspectives to renew our management methods.
