Historians have long been interested in knowledge—its nature and origin, and the circumstances under which it was created—but it has only been in recent years that the history of knowledge has emerged as an academic field in its own right. In Circulation of Knowledge, a group of Nordic scholars explore a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to this new and exciting area of historical research. The question of knowledge in motion is central to their investigations, and especially how knowledge is transformed when it circulates between different societal arenas, literary genres, or forms of media. Reflecting on twelve empirical studies, from sixteenth-century cartography to sexology in the 1970s, the authors make a significant contribution to the growing international research on the history of knowledge. newhistoryofknowledge.com

This book speaks about a world of mute objects ranging from plant bulbs, divining rods, and archeological findings to drawn, painted, or printed images. It describes the functions of these objects as ambiguous and polyvalent carriers of knowledge, and it analyzes the ways in which networks of scholars, craftsmen, mathematicians, anatomy professors, or merchants active in the Low Countries attributed new meanings to them. The book examines a period in which cities like Antwerp and Amsterdam were nodal points in the international exchange of goods, news, and skills.

Catholic Social Teaching has been described as the best kept secret of the Church. This is particularly regrettable now that the Catholic Church is one of the few global voices to uphold the 'primacy of labor over capital'. Rapid transformations in the world economy mean that growth, productivity, and profitability are no longer closely associated with increases in employment. In Work and Human Fulfillment, members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences and their colleagues explore the recent changes in the world of work. The book includes a summary of the key positions taken by the Church on work and employment, and extracts of the papers presented and discussed at the three plenary sessions of the Pontifical Academy in 1996, 1997, and 1999 focusing on the following areas: Present situation and current trends of work across the world, globalized economy, contemporary institutions and their response to unemployment, capital labor, analysis of policy options, and culture of work.
