PHILOSOPHY AND KNOWLEDGE:

Michael FASCIA

Abstract


To underpin the importance of knowledge, the European commissioner for
science and research Janez Potocnic confirms that in today’s global world,
generating new knowledge and turning it into new products and services is
crucial to enhance competitiveness. (Potocnic, 2007)In distinguishing between
the linear notion of knowledge transfer and the business success attached to
knowledge functionality, this thesis argues that whilst knowledge and knowledge
transfer in a business success context is understood from a Aristotelian, Anglo
American and perhaps Secular perspective, the way knowledge is interpreted in
relation to business success via other perspectives has been largely ignored.
Similarly, the interpretation of information into meaningful knowledge prior to
transfer which is mediated by actors personal experiential and cultural models,
both of which are created from cognitive dispositions and socio-cultural
interaction, 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
