Crippling Epistemologies and Governance Failures

A Plea for Experimentalism

Author: Gilles Paquet

Publisher: University of Ottawa Press

ISBN: 0776618105

Category: Political Science

Page: 298

View: 7480

In Crippling Epistemologies and Governance Failures, Gilles Paquet criticizes the prevailing practices of the social sciences on the basis of their inadequate concepts of knowledge, evidence and inquiry, concepts he claims have become methodological “mental prisons”. Paquet describes the prevailing policy development process in Canada in terms of its weak information infrastructure, poor accountability, and inflexible organization design. In contrast, he suggests that social science and public policy should promote forms of “serious play” that would allow organizations to experiment with new structures. Paquet engages with numerous foundationalist programs in the social sciences in order to show their inadequacy and suggests important and unexplored directions in policy areas as diverse as education, science, health, intergovernmental and foreign policy. He closes the work with a plea for experimentalism in academic research, policy development, and organization design.

Wissen und Informationen haben sich in den letzten Jahren zu zentralen Elementen bei der Wahrung von Wettberwbsfähigkeit und Überlebensmöglichkeit sowohl von Individuen und Unternehmen als auch ganzer Nationen entwickelt. Die Bedeutung von Wissen hat in allen Sphären menschlicher Interacktion deutlich zugenommen. Moderne Technologien ermöglichen den Einsatz von Wissen praktisch verzögerungsfrei und zu vernachlässigbaren Kosten gleichzeitig an verschiedenen, weltweit auseinander liegenden Orten. Dieser Sachverhalt gilt keineswegs nur für Unternehmungen. Er gilt ebenso für Unternehmensstandorte (Volkswirtschaften) bzw. für die Einbindung neuer Teilnehmar( -länder) in den inzwischen weltweiten Prozess der Arbeitsleitung.

As we move into the 21st century, the turbulent transformation of economy and society looks set to continue. Growing integration of markets, radical new technologies, and the increasing knowledge intensity of human activity all point to the emergence of an immensely complex world. But how will it be managed? And by whom? What forms of organization and decision-making will be required at local, national and global levels to meet the challenges of the next decades?One thing seems certain: old forms of governance —in the public sector, corporations and civil society —are becoming increasingly ineffective. New forms of governance will be needed over the next few decades, which will involve a much broader range of active players. This book explores some of the opportunities and risks —economic, social and technological —that decision-makers will have to address in the coming years, and outlines what needs to be done to foster society's capacity to manage its future more flexibly and with broader participation of its citizens.
