Knowledge and the regulation of innovation

Poiesis and Praxis 7 (1-2):73-86 (2010)
Abstract
Technology assessment (TA) is an important instrument for the regulation of innovation. From the perspective of sociology of knowledge, the regulatory process can be understood as a complex interplay between different forms of knowledge. The prevailing instruments of TA, expertise and participation, are both facing difficulties in dealing with the limits and impasses of regulatory knowledge in the realm of innovation. Nevertheless, as is argued in this article, reflexive forms of TA offer a good, if not the only, answer to the question of how we can deal with the contradictions and paradoxes involved in the regulation of innovation.
