Authors propose a systemic-constructivist perspective for analyzing knowledge construction. In contrast to theories that focus on individuals as actors, the systemic-constructivist approach emphasizes the relevance of social systems and regards the construction of knowledge as a self-referential process that takes place in social systems. Authors propose that it is the system that defines what is accepted as legitimate knowledge and thus shapes individuals’ behavior. Authors present this approach and its implications by providing a case study of knowledge construction in Wikipedia. Authors analyzed the article about the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant shortly after the nuclear catastrophe unfolded. There was a flood of highly uncertain information circulating, which the social system Wikipedia had to deal with and make meaning of. Authors obtained a group of very diverse people who largely lacked specific background education on the topic but accomplished the collaborative creation of an article that was later considered by...

Overview

Authors propose a systemic-constructivist perspective for analyzing knowledge construction. In contrast to theories that focus on individuals as actors, the systemic-constructivist approach emphasizes the relevance of social systems and regards the construction of knowledge as a self-referential process that takes place in social systems. Authors propose that it is the system that defines what is accepted as legitimate knowledge and thus shapes individuals’ behavior. Authors present this approach and its implications by providing a case study of knowledge construction in Wikipedia. Authors analyzed the article about the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant shortly after the nuclear catastrophe unfolded. There was a flood of highly uncertain information circulating, which the social system Wikipedia had to deal with and make meaning of.
