This is new, because mostly in Cultural Studies semiotics merely analyzes signs in terms of their reference, i.e. their abstract reconstructed significance out-of-context. Gagliardi, in this book (he goes on to expand on that topic by aiming to orient Organizational Studies towards an aesthetic orientation, i.e. one focused on the reality-in-the-field), gives a framework that is intriguing, practical and enriching all at the same time.
The case studies in this book are easily accessible, stimulating and rich.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and have come to rely heavily on the thinking it has introduced me to.
