Wlad Godzich: “Towards an Epistemics of Knowledge: Knowledge and Capital”

Professor Godzich examines how the elevation of knowledge into a motor of economic activity affects the status and organization of knowledge. It is his hypothesis that a knowledge-driven economy poses a challenge to a capital-driven one, and that it foreshadows the advent of a knowledge-centered society. His research examines the role of universities within such a society.

Professor Godzich is Distinguished Professor of General and Comparative Literature and Critical Studies at UCSC.
