Linear Notion of Knowledge. A Short Review

Fascia, Michael



Considering the difference between the linear notion of knowledge transfer and the business success attached to knowledge functionality, this discussion considers several important aspects of the linearity of knowledge. First, that knowledge and knowledge transfer in a business success context is understood from a Aristotelian, Anglo American and perhaps Secular perspective. Second, the way knowledge is interpreted in relation to business success via other perspectives has been largely ignored. This discussion purports that what we can also consider is the interpretation of information into meaningful knowledge prior to transfer, and how this is mediated by actors personal experiential and cultural models. The discussion regards this formation as both cognitive dispositions and socio-cultural interaction. This is therefore a facet which has not been understood well enough to attribute it to an alternative perspective or view. Moreover, the degree to which perceptive dispositions influence knowledge transfer, either subjectively or objectively, in relation to a business context surrounding personal demands and criticisms, has not been fully identified.

This discussion therefore considers both the linearity of knowledge from a business perspective and develops this into knowledge formations and entanglements in a singular dynamic entity.
