Abstract

The topic of knowledge management will be analysed from a critical perspective; as will the topic of knowledge creation (Nonaka and Takeuchi, 1995). To begin with, the key motivations behind the discourse of knowledge creation and management are briefly discussed. The contemporary distinction between tacit and explicit knowledge is then explored. Following this, the work of Lyotard on knowledge in a (post)modern economy will be summarised. The paper then explores how some work by Foucault may provide a new direction for developing critical research strategies in this area.
