this art and leadership issues has snowballed ... as the email that started
this round was a late comment and answer as I understand it to a previous
enquiry of mine about literature on the myth of leadership as art, I was
amazed at the various directions in which the discussion exploded.
All your contributions then and now have feeded into my current writing on
the myths of Management, and also the myths of Art: both artists and
managers can be the victims of their own myths.
Another thing that is clear from the discussion is that today the
understanding of art as techne is mixed up with a more recend understanding
of art as a marginalised disinterested (in a Kantian sense) activity at the
same time central to but mystified role in society.
I recently read Deirdre McCloskeys last book The Bourgeois virtues (2006).
She discusses the difference between techne and phronesis by the Greeks and
later Roman thinkers. That would be interesting to hear your ideas about.
Look forward to the next round of this discussion
