When the mind looks for a buoy.

I lis­te­ned to this while wri­ting this post, try it while you read :o)

Ano­ther day of conti­nui­ty on the inter­net. It seems that the pan­de­mic leaves its stig­ma by offe­ring people intel­lec­tual buoys so that they can avoid sin­king into the abyss of melan­cho­ly. Let’s keep going with our rea­ding streak.

Fol­lo­wing my refe­ren­cing algo­rithm, I was able to high­light works that would cer­tain­ly have gone unno­ti­ced by those who wouldn’t have been able to imple­ment this kind of method. Out of the 1,500 books, I came across Ches­ter Irving Barnard’s book, The Func­tions of the Exe­cu­tive. Now that I was star­ting to have a list of books in mind, as well as the ele­ments where these works are cited, I knew in advance what I would find in this book.

Bar­nard was not a scho­lar in the aca­de­mic sense of the term, so the struc­ture of his book was less struc­tu­red. The absence of a biblio­gra­phy made it more dif­fi­cult to qui­ck­ly know its influences, but I was still able to find my ans­wers in the few footnotes.

Never­the­less, an impor­tant ques­tion arose while rea­ding. Why is this book so often cited if it has so few sources? Thin­king that there may be a pos­sible bias in my method, I chose to put this book aside and tackle the next. Per­haps the fol­lo­wing books would lower its rating or clear­ly iden­ti­fy it as a flag­ship refe­rence work.
