This book provides readers the idea of systemically synthesizing various kind of knowledge, which needs to combine analytical thinking and synthetic thinking. Systems science is expected to help in solving contemporary complex problems, utilizing interdisciplinary knowledge effectively and combining analytical thinking and synthetic thinking efficiently. However, traditional systems science has been divided into two schools: one seeks a systematic procedure to give a correct objective answer; the other develops an emergent, systemic process so that the user can continue exploratory learning. It is not an exaggeration to say that analytical thinking and synthetic thinking have been developed independently, in different schools. This book integrates approaches developed in these two schools, using ideas in knowledge science that have been emerging recently under the influence of Eastern thinking. It emphasizes the importance of utilizing intuition in systems approaches, whereas other books usually try to solve problems rationally and objectively, rejecting subjectivity. This book never denies rationality and objectivity; however, complex problems of today do not always yield to complete analysis. The novelty of this present volume is that it takes in the ideas of synthetic thinking in knowledge science to develop systems science further. The chapter contributors, who are experienced systems scientists with a profound understanding of knowledge management, discuss knowledge synthesis from the Western and Eastern cultural perspectives. The book introduces a theory on systemic knowledge synthesis in an odd chapter and then presents an application of the theory in the next chapter in order to contribute to developing translational systems science.

Integrating ideas from the fields of systems science and knowledge science, Knowledge and Systems Science: Enabling Systemic Knowledge Synthesis shows how to create and justify various pieces of knowledge systemically. Written by one of the foremost experts in this area, the book presents approaches for the systemic integration of knowledge, which can help solve complex problems today and in the future. After discussing issues of systemic knowledge synthesis, the book emphasizes the importance of the human dimension in problem solving and introduces a new integrated systems approach called the informed systems approach. It also covers mathematical information aggregation techniques. Moving on to knowledge science concepts and approaches, the book discusses organizational and academic knowledge creation models and considers a sociological interpretation of the knowledge integration system. To support knowledge science as an academic discipline, the author explains how to justify knowledge and summarizes a theory of knowledge synthesis (construction) systems. Through case studies of technology archiving, academic research evaluation, demand forecasting of perishable foods, and other real-world concerns, this book demonstrates the use of new knowledge-based methods in addressing a variety of complex issues. It also illustrates the importance of acquiring a systemic view through trained intuition.

Knowledge science is an emerging discipline resulting from the demands of a knowledge-based economy and information revolution. Explaining how to improve our knowledge-based society, Knowledge Science: Modeling the Knowledge Creation Process addresses problems in collecting, synthesizing, coordinating, and creating knowledge. The book introduces several key concepts in knowledge science: Knowledge technology, which encompasses classification, representation, modeling, identification, acquisition, searching, organization, storage, conversion, and dissemination Knowledge management, which covers three different yet related areas (knowledge assets, knowing processes, knower relations) Knowledge discovery and data mining, which combine databases, statistics, machine learning, and related areas to discover and extract valuable knowledge from large volumes of data Knowledge synthesis, knowledge justification, and knowledge construction, which are important in solving real-life problems Specialists in decision science, artificial intelligence, systems engineering, behavioral science, and management science, the book’s contributors present their own original ideas, including an Oriental systems philosophy, a new episteme in the knowledge-based society, and a theory of knowledge construction. They emphasize the importance of systemic thinking for developing a better society in the current knowledge-based era.

The way an organization manages and disseminates its knowledge is key to informed business decision-making, effectiveness and competitive edge. Because knowledge management is not a one-size-fits-all method, you need a framework tailored to your organization and its priorities. The Knowledge Manager's Handbook takes you step by step through the processes needed to define and embed an effective knowledge management framework within your organization. Knowledge management experts Nick Milton and Patrick Lambe draw on their practical experience as consultants and project leaders to guide you through each stage of creating and implementing a knowledge management framework to answer your organization's specific needs. The framework takes into account the four essential aspects of knowledge management - people, processes, technologies and governance - and shows how each of these can be optimized to unlock the value of your organization's knowledge. With international case studies from organizations of all sizes and sectors, and user-friendly templates and checklists to help you implement effective knowledge management procedures, The Knowledge Manager's Handbook is the end to end guide to making a sustainable change in your organization's knowledge management culture.

"Among the philosophical writers of the present century in these islands, no one occupies a higher position than Sir William Hamilton. He alone, of our metaphysicians of this and the preceding generation, has acquired, merely as such, an European celebrity: while, in our own country, he has not only had power to produce a revival of interest in a study which had ceased to be popular, but has made himself, in some sense, the founder of a school of thought. The school, indeed, is not essentially new; for its fundamental doctrines are those of the philosophy which has everywhere been in the ascendant since the setting in of the reaction against Locke and Hume, which dates from Reid among ourselves and from Kant for the rest of Europe. But that general scheme of philosophy is split into many divisions, and the Hamiltonian form of it is distinguished by as marked peculiarities as belong to any other of its acknowledged varieties. My subject, therefore, is less Sir W . Hamilton, than the questions which Sir W . Hamilton discussed. It is, however, impossible to write on those questions in our own country and in our own time, without incessant reference, express or tacit, to his treatment of them."
