The importance and weaknesses of the productivist industrial model of knowledge production
Jönköping University, School of Education and Communication, HLK, Lifelong learning/Encell. (School Based Research and Development)

Abstract [en]

To view contemporary Science as an industry is a very apt and timely stance. Ghassib's (2010) historical analysis of knowledge production, which he terms "A Productivist Industrial Model of Knowledge Production," is an interesting one. It is important, however, to observe that the outline of this model is based entirely on the production of Natural Science, and that its epistemological basis is a positivist one. Since the article argues to focus on the creative process and its developing objectives through history, this raises a few concerns needing further discussion in order to strengthen the legitimacy of the proposed model. The author discusses these concerns and proposes a widening of the epistemological worldview; a more updated understanding of the nature of Science; the inclusion of other Sciences and last but not least: to address the potentially negative consequences of the model.

Note

This is a peer commentary published in response to Hisham B. Ghassib's theoretical article "Where Does Creativity Fit into a Productivist Industrial Model of Knowledge Production?" published in the same journal. This particular issue of GTI is a special issue entirely devoted to this model of knowledge production.
