The Rise of Peer Production: Collegiality, Collaboration, and Collective Intelligence

  1. Peters, T. Besley, P. Jandrić & X. Zhu (Editors)

 

Knowledge socialism is a term that refers to a new global collectivist society that is coming online based on communal aspects of digital culture including sharing, cooperation, collaboration, peer production and collective intelligence. This collection aims to explore the way our collective digital tools have the power to create the intellectual commons and reshape our minds.

Keywords: Knowledge Economy, Knowledge Capitalism, Openness, Open Knowledge Production, Knowledge Capitalism, Knowledge Cultures, Knowledge Socialism

 

Knowledge Socialism. The Rise of Peer Production: Collegiality, Collaboration, and Collective Intelligence is an edited collection that takes seriously arguments for knowledge socialism and collective intelligence by inviting a group of distinguished international scholars to contribute essays on the theme of the concept of knowledge socialism as a philosophical concept that has the power both to explain aspects of current knowledge practices but also certain contradictions in the structure and practice of knowledge capitalism. Essays may also explore knowledge socialism as a programmatic concept, as a project, as a reality, and as a prescriptive concept. Essays may explain knowledge socialism as an historical practice, as a part of knowledge capitalism, or as a complicit aspect of algorithmic capitalism. Sub themes of knowledge socialism include:

 

  • the rise of peer production
  • the history of peer review
  • openness – open science, open access
  • the model of open knowledge production
  • cognitive capitalism
  • knowledge capitalism
  • knowledge cultures
  • forms of collegiality
  • creative labour vs human capitalism
  • collective intelligence
  • social innovation
