From the Publisher"Knowledge Management Foundations provides a much sought after intellectual platform for thinking about the management and development of knowledge in private and public organizations. He has created a reconstructive critique of Knowledge Management that goes far outside of the borders of traditional writing on the topic. This book offers a straightforward and major policy program for universities and corporations alike in thinking about their most valuable resource: knowledge. Managers on all levels should read this book, as should philosophers and sociologists of science who want to know about the ongoing real-world applications of their ideas. Fuller's book will become a classic."

"Steve Fuller has written a book that finally takes a critical look at the guru-hype that passes for Knowledge Management (KM). Fuller points out that prior work is so ridiculous that universities are now classified as the 'dumb organizations' and any McDonald's franchise is a 'smart' one. We are witnessing the deskilling of the knowledge worker, and the McDonaldization of the university. As Steve puts it, there is no 'free lunch' in cyberspace. This book will set the KM field upside down, where it belongs."
