Political Knowledge and American Democracy
Melanson, Philip H.
Social Studies, 65, 6, 241-244, Nov 74
This article examines what makes knowledge political in its derivation and uses, and what potential political functions it may serve. Emphasis is placed upon the idea that the consequences of political knowledge for a democracy are neither uniformly beneficent or malevolent; but depend upon how the knowledge is being used and by whom.
