Abstract [en]

Human beings are such complex creatures who deserve to be sociologically and philosophically studied more deeply in order to understand relationships that are emerging from relations and are shaping the world and its institutions. Viewing leadership as a social construct, we want to focus on society in order to understand the way leadership is impacted. Thus, we drive our research through a general state of mind called disenchantment spreading in the postmodern times.

This thesis is looking into the imprint of disenchantment on leadership through its various attributes. With a philosophical approach, we attempt to provide a good understanding of key concepts affecting the minds of the society, extending them further to the sphere of leadership. Our research takes shape of the desk study grounded in the secondary data to which we apply actors methodological approach due to the value of interpretation in the topic in question.

Starting off with an outline of disenchantment manifestations and roots, we look at the context of postmodernity in more detail, finalizing by revisiting leadership through the prism of researched concepts. This thesis intends to inspire people to change by enlarging their knowledge about the current state of disenchanted postmodernity.
