Sample text

The proposed strategy, or 'rule of method' to enter facts and machines is a tricky one. He invites us to forget about end products and to look at science 'in the making' as opposed to 'ready-made' science: 'We go from final products to production, from "cold" stable objects to "warm" and unstable ones. Instead of black boxing the technical aspects of science and then looking for social influences and biases, we realized how much simpler it was to be there before the box closes and becomes black' (Latour 1987: 21).

They look at knowledgecreating dynamics in reverse, so to speak, by focusing on discontinuities in time, action, and experience. Each lens provides a distinctive angle, or mode of access, to the tacit features of organizational knowledge systems. Specifically, it is possible to identify three distinctive but interrelated processes to which each lens directs our attention: • the sedimentation of knowledge-oriented patterns over time (time); • the routinization of successful responses to problematic situations (breakdowns); • the embodiment of successful practices into some forms of organizational discourse (narratives).

It is not just a property or a convertible steady state. Rather, the tacit nature of human and organizational knowing is related to problems of pre-interpretation.

This leads to a sort of ontological blindness whereby social phenomena become gradually entangled in the structure of everydayness and evade notice.
