The Course of Knowledge, A 21st Century Theory lays the groundwork for exploring different ways of understanding, creating, sharing, and working with knowledge.
The authors, from
Mountain Quest Institute, advise that the book explores a theory of knowledge that is both pragmatic and biological. Pragmatic in that it is based on taking effective action, and biological because it is created by humans via patterns of neuronal connections in the mind/brain.
