Example text

The catchphrase for this figure discourse on learning and organization, 14 FROM ORGANIZATIONAL LEARNING TO KNOWING IN PRACTICE ‘knowledge management’, unites the image of knowledge as a commodity (or asset) with that of its intentional and deliberate control. The economics of knowledge is the political economy of knowledge as well. When a garden is laid out, the designer is aware that plants grow, that they grow and spread, and that they have lives of their own. Functionalist views of knowledge, like those of house architecture, are based on the fixity of structure and on the control of form.

This is an attempt to hold knowers accountable for what they do, and to make explicit to whom and to what they need to be accountable. • Knowledge is transformative and futural. Feminists seek to have an impact on important aspects of how the world is constituted, and to exert an effect upon the culture of practices that they study in order to legitimate the changes that they hope to engender. They therefore assert an alternative to the supposed neutrality and detachment of knowing as portrayed in science by propounding reflective and selfcritical participation in the production of knowledge.

The term ‘indexical’ was originally used in linguistics to denote expressions that are only completely comprehensible in the concrete context where they are produced and used. The indexicality of social actions means that actors do not usually encounter problems in understanding each other, largely because comprehension is a constant and contingent achievement that depends on their interpretive work. Understanding situated practices therefore requires understanding of how individuals successfully use indexical behaviours and expressions whose meanings are constantly negotiated and renegotiated in the course of interaction.
