Abstract

English abstract: Entrepreneurship is a pluri-disciplinary phenomenon, object of research in several areas of knowledge. However, studies on this theme present approaches that start to consider entrepreneurship as a field of private knowledge in the phase of epistemological construction. In this context, the aim of this investigation is to contribute to the discussions on the theme, through studies on the ontoteleological constitution of entrepreneurship, in propaedeutic character, deflagrating new approaches. Thus, there is a presentation concerning the study of entrepreneurship, which may emphasize its ontical and ontological aspects. In addition, the reason why it is complex to define entrepreneurship is investigated. Subjects regarding the philosophy of entrepreneurship are introduced, seeking to present the bases for an ontoteleological approach to the phenomenon. Such an approach assumes that the finality of the entrepreneurial act relates to the main principles and transformations required into the organization. Finally, it is concluded that man is an entrepreneurial being, the meta-entrepreneur, and his entrepreneurial actions are not determined by external factors, but rather by the condition of his potentiality.

Spanish abstract: El emprendimiento es un fenómeno multidisciplinario, y objeto de investigación en muchas áreas del conocimiento. Sin embargo, los estudios que se aproximan a este tema, consideran el emprendimiento, en su fase de la epistemología inicial, como un campo de conocimiento privado. En este contexto, el objetivo de esta investigación es contribuir al debate sobre el tema, a través de un estudio sobre la constitución ontoteleológica del emprendimiento, su carácter propedéutico, y proponer un nuevo enfoque. Se presenta un estudio sobre el emprendimiento que enfatiza sus aspectos ónticos y ontológicos. Además, se investiga la razón por la que es complejo definir el espíritu emprendedor. Se introducen temas relativos a la filosofía del emprendimiento, buscando presentar las bases para un acercamiento ontoteleológico a este fenómeno. Se asume que la finalidad del emprendimiento responde a los principios y transformaciones requeridos en las empresas. Finalmente, se concluye que el hombre es un ser emprendedor, metaemprendedor, y sus acciones emprendedoras no están determinadas por factores externos, sino por su propio potencial.
