The Refractive Thinker celebrates the accomplishments of the doctoral scholars contained within the pages of their fourth volume: Ethics, Leadership, and Globalization. The intent is to provide a forum for these authors to share their thoughts and expertise as they contribute to our expanse of knowledge in pursuits of the tenets of and philosophies of higher learning. These individual contributions included a Peer Review Board.

The title of this series, The Refractive Thinker was chosen intentionally to describe a new way of thinking. As a society, we often find ourselves between the dichotomies of either thinking within the box (thinking) or outside of the box (critical thinking). The Refractive Thinker introduces the concept of refractive thinking thinking beyond the box, perhaps even building a new box entirely. As a result, this series highlights the ability of these doctoral scholars to bend thought, to converge its very essence on the ability to obliquely pass through the perspective of another. The goal is to ask and ponder the right questions; to dare to think differently, to find new applications within unique and cutting edge dimensions, ultimately to lead where others may follow or to risk forging perhaps a new path entirely.

The goal of this series is to provide additional guidance one might need as a citizen of the world. For Volume IV, these scholars and authors provide readers with new lenses with which to explore ambiguity and to navigate turbulent waters offering new paths to success. Topics will include ethics, leadership, and various global concerns currently affecting the business landscape. Discover additional answers to consider and the many pearls of wisdom offered within these pages.
