Admiration, not Appreciation?

Voswinkel’s essay is one of the first attempts to apply the recognition theory approach in industrial sociology. Voswinkel differentiates between „appreciation”, a form of interpersonal mutual recognition of achievements, and „admiration”, which lacks the mutual element and presupposes distance. Voswinkel then applies these two notions in the historical analysis of labour relations from the Fordist period to contemporary organization of labour.
