NEW BOOK (ENG): „Humanistic Management, Organization and Aesthetics: Management of Art and Art of Management”, Routledge, New York

I am pleased to inform that I have signed a contract with a leading global scientific publishing house, Routledge – Taylor & Francis Group, on my new book entitled „Humanistic Management, Organization and Aesthetics: Management of Art and Art of Management”.

Abstract: The book is the first worldwide publication of a complex theory of management aesthetics in humanistic management based on the aesthetics and arts approach allowing for a complete and systemic understanding of the management art and art management phenomenon. The methodology is based on the critical literature review and five empirical research: qualitative, quantitative, and autoethnography. The main goal of this monograph is to create a holistic model that organises the issues of management aesthetics and shows the interdependence of the components of this model. The role of this model should be to perform a central function for a complete and systemic understanding of the phenomenon of management aesthetics, as well as to perform the function of a field based on which analysis of individual issues in the area of management aesthetics is conducted. The critical component of this holistic model is Maria Gołaszewska’s theory of the aesthetic situation. Two theses of the book are the following: 1. The theory of aesthetics and artistic practice have the potential to enrich the theory and practice of management with qualitative components through deep immersion in the world of values; 2. Management theory and practice have the potential to enrich the theory of aesthetics and artistic practice with efficiency components.

The book will appear in the Humanistic Management series at the end of 2023.
