This paper first examines Aristotle's original conceptualization of phronesis in the Nicomachean Ethics, arguing that it includes an important, implicit aesthetic aspect which is often overlooked in modern social science; second, it finds links between this conception of phronesis and current approaches in organizational scholarship, strengthening the case for, and the applicability of, organizational aesthetics.
