Abstract: During an unguided tour of the Epistemological Forest, we will at least bump into some of the classical questions about knowledge. What is knowledge? How is knowledge acquired? How is knowledge shared? We may also explore some of the more quirky questions. What is the currency for knowledge exchange? What about knowledge banks? Who pays and who collects the dividends? The session will seek to maintain a pragmatic focus in exploring the role and kinds of knowledge and the mechanisms for knowledge exchange in the pursuit of comprehensive community health.
