Judgment and Strategy

Robin Holt

Oxford University Press

This last chapter considers the organizational form poetic judgment might take, arguing that in strategic practice it might be productively aligned to forms of the pastoral. In pastoral images there is no completion, and any sense of settlement is always accompanied by the possibility of discord. The chapter revisits the distinction between poetic judgment and practical knowledge associated with phronesis, arguing that it is an acceptance of the disturbance thrown up by experience and skepticism, but a refusal still to let the world decide.
