Architectures of Knowledge

Firms, Capabilities, and Communities

Ash Amin and Patrick Cohendet

Architectures of Knowledge seeks to demonstrate that a recognition of the importance of the role of knowledge in economies may lead to a new conception of the firm and public policy. To construct an alternative theorization of knowledge formation and knowledge governance in firms, the book assembles together the most advanced research in different disciplines: economics, science and technology studies, cognitive sciences (including situated and distributed cognition), economic geography, and management science. Placing the concept of community at the very centre of the argument, the book arrives at an understanding of the way in which new places of knowledge are created and mobilized in economic activities.
