 "I don't think we will get very far if we confuse knowledge with information."

 Jurriaan, epistemologically this difference is of huge importance, but not in the light of value theory.
>From value theorie's point of view what counts is how much awarage labour power is needed to produce.
That what is being produce is secondary here. Am I wrong?

Thema: [OPE] intermission: value of knowledge

I must say that I find recent contributions to this thread increasingly bizarre, and I feel saddened and ashamed that knowledgeable scholars who have benefited from so much education can utter such tripe. What on earth is the relevance of such abstract comments, in abstraction from any serious investigation of the markets for knowledge? Wouldn't it better to start of first by inventorizing the ways in which intellectual property is actually sold, and what sort of property rights pertain to it? I don't think we will get very far if we confuse knowledge with information.
