taking on a distinct kind of speech as a reflection of its context and
content. The Anonymous Life of Patek Philippe introduces us to
the intricacies of value attribution at play in this Swiss watch
brand through the perspective a wristwatch. On Escolha (André

Integration Process
presents the St. Gallen Management School
where, since the 1960s, economics and ecology have been
