Knowledge and Its Enemies
Kruk, Miroslav
Australian Library Journal, v56 n1 p17-29 Feb 2007
As libraries are the physical manifestations of knowledge, some refection about the concept of knowledge would not be unjustified. In modern societies, knowledge plays such a central role that it requires some effort and imagination to understand on what grounds knowledge could be rejected. Karl Popper wrote about the open society and its enemies. This essay is about the enemies of knowledge.
