Example text

A relationship illustrated here is that between past, present and the future, which is infused with memories, feelings, emotions and fantasy to allow imagination, creativity and foresight (Boulding 1956). What is also important about intuition is that there is a perception by the knower of his or her correctness of judgement. Such cognitive processes have also been the subject of research by social judgement theorists who have shown the importance, prevalence and reproducibility of judgements made by professionals (Brunswick 1956; Hitt and Tyler 1991).

Finally, an overall view of this handbook reveals some important commonalities in the way our contributors understand and treat knowledge. The most important of these is that they tend to focus on the relational characteristics of knowledge. It is also important that many contributors bring into the foreground issues such as space (situation and place) and values. These key emphases represent the state of play in contemporary knowledge research. These insights suggest that for practitioners in knowledge management or knowledge-related policy production and analysis, the coal face at which they should be working is understanding, changing and facilitating relationships, constructing places and situations that are knowledge-enabling, and responding positively to the realization that knowledge-based economies are not Cartesian, values-free machines whose only purpose is the yielding of high returns on investment.

Included in our discussion of knowledge, then, is an acknowledgement that knowing occurs in defined situations. Knowledge understood in this way is said to be situated (Lave and Wenger 1991), and situations can be said to have their own situational logic (Archer 1996). For the purposes of this discussion, the knower’s situation is defined by the time and space they occupy, and, more specifically, the time and space in which their impulse to act becomes action. Importantly, with the situation we seek to account directly not only for the personal, cognitive, sociological and phenomenological locations and shapers of knowledge, but now also the historical, spatial and physical elements of knowledge systems.
