While browsing the ISI Web o’ Knowledge for articles on aesthetic (knowledge), I stumbled upon this interesting piece of research published in Journal of Management Inquiry. While I still need to read it thoroughly, the title at least seems really promising and the style used in the introduction inspiring, to say the least.
Taylor, Steven S. 2000. Aesthetic knowledge in academia – Capitalist pigs at the Academy of Management, Journal of Management Inquiry, 9(3): 304-328.
So, read the paper and see what you think.
