Damiano L. & Cañamero L. (2012) The frontier of synthetic knowledge: Toward a constructivist science. World Futures 68(3): 171–177.
This article focuses on the frontier between the technological domain of production of artefacts and the naturalistic domain of the sciences of life and cognition. It shows that, since the 1940s, this frontier has become the place of production of an innovative kind of scientific knowledge – “synthetic knowledge.” The article describes the methodology and the main characteristics of synthetic knowledge, and formulates a hypothesis on its epistemological genealogy. Accordingly, it characterizes synthetic knowledge as one of the most advanced expressions of a heterodox tradition of research which, since the 1930s, has been promoting the development of a “non-representationalist” – “constructivist” – science.
