For more than three centuries, emotion has been banished to the wings while cognition has monopolized center stage in the drama of leadership. Since Descartes wrote, "I think, therefore I am," we have been led to believe that the less emotion enters into our judgment, and the more objective and rigorous our thinking processes are, the better our decisions will be. A high IQ has been the path to power. Science and the scientific method have now turned Descartes's assertion on its head: "I am, therefore I think. What emerges from Damasio's research is a view of humankind quite different from that of cold automatons in pursuit of objectivity.

Unfortunately this determination is often met with roadblocks that our society erects to dissuade the creative spirit. Are these barriers inevitable or are they products of the way we manage our private and public institutions? Such questions are addressed in Artists, Craftsmen and Technocrats, a book that employs the terminology of applied art and design to discuss the state of business management worldwide.
