  2. Authority
    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 1993
    Social philospher Richard Sennett has written a book that looks at the cycles of rebellion and surrender both in our public and our private lives. He examines the structures of power and the notion of an "authority crisis". He believes the push and pull between management and labour is inevitable and enduring. He feels that for people to become free we need to give up our false notions of autonomy (the worker) and also the equally false notion of benevolence (the manager). By doing so we will make authority visible and make it the first step toward freedom.

    A handbook in which 'experts on expertise' review knowledge on expertise and expert performance and how experts may differ from non-experts in terms of their development, training, reasoning, knowledge, social support, and innate talent. Methods are described for the study of experts' knowledge and their performance of representative tasks from their domain of expertise. The development of expertise is also studied by retrospective interviews and the daily lives of experts are studied with diaries. In 15 major domains of expertise, the leading researchers summarize our knowledge on the structure and acquisition of expert skill and knowledge and discuss future prospects. General issues that cut across most domains are reviewed in chapters on various aspects of expertise such as general and practical intelligence, differences in brain activity, self-regulated learning, deliberate practice, aging, knowledge management, and creativity.
