My first field of research was strangely enough industrial markets after which i shifted to the study of enterprise and action in classical political economy. Then I was fascinated by the tension between freedom and norms and its relevance to understanding the emergence of the industrial institution of standardization. It seemed that industrial economy could be regarded as an aesthetic affair and that such a perspective might be informed by Kantian philosophy especially the third Critique of Judgement. It then appeared rather obvious that art might provide an illustrative shortcut to grasping what creative management might be about and how leadership in industry and successful artists have traits in common.
My proposition for both research and teaching goes; Art is a way to come closer to creativity in organizations and aesthetics is the philosophical approach best suited to articulate how it works!
