Post-discipline

From Knowledge Federation

Jump to: navigation, search

The Internet has changed the economy; the modern corporation is no longer a conveyor belt under a factory roof, but a brand and an international collection of configurable value chains. Why should academic knowledge work remain unchanged? We are creating knowledge federation as a post-discipline — i.e. as a flexible configurable federation of knowledge workers from different disciplines and other stake holders, who come together temporarily to work on a shared task. The academic discipline has enabled mass-production of knowledge; the post-discipline will enable communication and cooperation across disciplines and synthesizing insights across divisions. It will enable academia to freely focus on any issue that may be of interest, irrespective of conventional disciplinary interests.
