The fourth title in UQP's internationally recognised Creative Economy + Innovation Culture series Joining John Howkins' Creative Ecologies, John Hartley's The Uses of Digital Literacy and Carsten Herrmann-Pillath's The Economics of Identity and Creativity, leading American academic Richard E Lee's Knowledge Matters is the latest in this innovative series featuring international scholars and thinkers at the forefront of the creative industries. We face a long-term structural crisis in how we understand our world. With the rise of capitalism came structures of knowledge that divided 'facts' (sciences) from 'values' (humanities), but these divisions have become unsustainable in today's society - as shown by Australia's ongoing history wars. Lee argues that both knowledge and its structures form an inseparable whole, which governs what actions people will take. Knowledge Matters is a crucial step towards solving the structural crisis and helping us imagine and evaluate our possible futures.
