Beschreibung:

This volume explores the interaction of the computerized knowledge systems of the industrialized world with the starkly different ways of thinking characteristic of the Third World.
Science Under the Microscope; The Downside of Definition; Human Passages - Toward a New Theory of Development; Wanted - Experts for Third World Development, Thirty-five Megabytes of Experience Required; Knowledge, Wisdom and Computer "Cum Laude"; A Cage for Reason - The Formalities of Knowledge; The Limits of Logic - Folk Knowledge and Fuzz; The Wound of Knowledge.
Researchers in artificial intelligence have envisaged the use of the technology in capturing the knowledge of experts in fields relevant to developing nations. However, Schoenhoff argues that this technology merely reflects the Western preoccupation with literacy and rationality.
