Entrepreneurship is the capability to be an entrepreneur.Beyond that idea is an ideology; that a personís businessactions result in industrial growth or technical advances,making that person a leader in the economic world. Thecontributors to this latest volume in the Praxiology Seriesare united in claiming that resourcefulness is a characteristicof people who take effective action, and that effectivenessis dependent on good, ethical purposes.The wide angle definition of entrepreneurship presentedin this volume demands that people and organizationsengage in more than simple self-interest, but also displayawareness of the prospects for wider growth and advancesresulting from their decisions. In the period of financial crisiscaused by irresponsible behavior by eminent would-be "entrepreneurs"the significance of this perspective should be evident.As the editors claim, growth, not decrease, advantage notdecline, are irreversible traits of entrepreneurial activity. This iswhy the very concept of entrepreneurship calls for values andresponsibility; these days even more than in the past.The contributors to this volume in the PraxiologySeries, develop the idea of entrepreneurship from boththeoretical approaches (philosophical, praxiological,psychological, economical, sociological), religious andpractical or applied perspectives. This inter- and multidisciplinaryapproach offers readers a window throughwhich they may rebuild trust in entrepreneurship.
