Title: The ‘Knowledge’ in Knowledge Economy
Authors: Kinghorn, Johann
Keywords: Knowledge economy
memory bank
embedded knowledge
Issue Date: Nov-2007
Publisher: JAIST Press
Abstract: The conceptual apparatus at our disposal to describe the knowledge dimension of the notion of “knowledge economy” is hugely underdeveloped. This is in part because the phenomenon is new but predominantly because the attempts in this regard fall back on either the truth paradigm or the utility paradigm within which discourse in connection with the notion of knowledge have traditionally been conducted. It is contended that the knowledge economy is more than mere extensions of either or both knowledge traditions. It is argued that knowledge becomes ‘visible’ to the human mind only when it takes form in memory, and that memory banks are established in various dimensions of social existence. To understand the knowledge economy better, and indeed the ‘knowledge’ in the knowledge economy, the mapping of the profile of memory is proposed. From that vantage point knowledge in the knowledge economy is seen to reside in codified, embodied and embedded symbols. Some conclusions about the notion of knowledge in the knowledge economy are drawn.
