Abstract [en]

This paper is a call for a new research agenda for the topic of intelligence studies as a scientific discipline counterbalancing the present domination of research in the art of intelligence or intelligence as a practice. I argue that there is a need to move away from a narrow perspective on practice to pursue a broader understanding of intelligence as an organizational discipline with all of its complexities where the subject is seen as more critical and is allowed to reflect on itself as a topic. This path will help intelligence academics connect to theoretical developments gained elsewhere and move forward, towards establishing more of an intelligence science. The article is critical of what the author sees as a constructionist line of thinking. Instead the author presents a theory of intelligence as learning how to "muddle through" influenced more by organizational theory. The author also argues for an independent scientific journal in Intelligence.
