“ipsa scientia potestas est“ (‚knowledge itself is power‘) ― Bacon (2010)
There are different forms of knowledge needed to advance one’s scope of power. And this depends on the type of actor who seeks knowledge. Research suggests that knowledge is connected to intellectual sphere. Intellectual capacities can be differentiated as follows:
Vision: knowing what to achieve and how to get there
Education and Skills: knowing what you can do
Environment: knowing where you are
Research in context of impACT Berlin and other impACT conferences will explore this topic in more detail.
