Fri, Nov 21, 2014 Introduction: Jürgen Renn

What is knowledge? Intuitive, practical, or theoretical knowledge, traditional knowledge, the knowledge that arises together with technology, the knowledge that is kept arcane: each form of knowledge comes with its own instructions on how to think and act and its very own limits. Insight into forms and formats of knowledge and—a plea for niches.
