The Knowledge Book is a unique interdisciplinary reference work for students and researchers concerned with the nature of knowledge. It is the first work of its kind to be organized on the assumption that knowledge is intrinsically social. The book consists of over forty alphabetically arranged entries on key concepts at the intersection of philosophy and sociology - now commonly referred to as "social epistemology." Entries include concepts common to disciplines that in recent years have devoted more attention to knowledge: cultural studies, communication studies, information science, education, policy studies, and business studies. Special attention is given to concepts from the emerging field of science and technology studies. Each entry presents a short, self-contained essay providing an overview of a concept and concludes with suggestions for further reading. All entries are cross-referenced, allowing readers to both make connections and follow their own interests. Book jacket.… (more)
