The article discusses the need for management teachings, which, arguably, differ substantially from any experience of managerial practice. It is suggested that the teachings of management are a necessary component in the social construction of organizations; thus they form an important part of the organizational economy that dominates world society. This is why management cannot be taught from a practice perspective only, but must be taught dualistically: as a coherent set of ideas - a doctrine - and as it may turn out in practice. The teachings of management should be simultaneously trusted and distrusted, and all students of management should master the capacity to embrace contradictory views on the topic of management.
