Commentary by management consultant Michael Wade on Leadership, Ethics, Management, and Life
Wednesday, May 01, 2019
The craftsman's habitual deference is not toward the New, but toward the objective standards of his craft. However narrow in its application, this is a rare appearance in contemporary life - a disinterested, articulable, and publicly affirmable idea of the good. Such a strong ontology is somewhat at odds with the cutting-edge institutions of the new capitalism, and with the educational regime that aims to supply those institutions with suitable workers - pliable generalists unfettered by any single set of skills.
