Synopsis: This is a major work by three international scholars at the cutting edge of new research that investigates the emerging set of complex relationships between creativity, design, research, higher education and knowledge capitalism. It highlights the role of the creative and expressive arts, of performance, of aesthetics in general, and the significant role of design as an underlying infrastructure for the creative economy. This book tracks the most recent mutation of these serial shifts – from postindustrial economy to the information economy to the digital economy to the knowledge economy to the ‘creative economy’ – to summarize the underlying and essential trends in knowledge capitalism and to investigate post-market notions of open source public space. The book hypothesizes that creative economy might constitute an enlargement of its predecessors that not only democratizes creativity and relativizes intellectual property law, but also emphasizes the social conditions of creative work. It documents how these profound shifts have brought to the forefront forms of knowledge production based on the commons and driven by ideas, not profitability per se; and have given rise to the notion of not just ‘knowledge management’ but the design of ‘creative institutions’ embodying new patterns of work.

About the Author: The Authors: Michael A. Peters is Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Adjunct Professor at the School of Art of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

His interests are broadly defined in areas of education, philosophy and social theory, and he has written over forty books and three hundred academic papers, including most recently: Showing and Doing: Wittgenstein as Pedagogical Philosopher (with N.

Kapitzke, 2008); Knowledge Economy, Development, and the Future of the University (2007); and Building Knowledge Cultures: Education and Development in the Age of Knowledge Capitalism (with T. Besley, 2006).
Simon Marginson is Professor of Higher Education in the Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
