ON GRECO ON TRANSMISSION

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  15 December 2016

Abstract

Greco wants to understand the difference between knowledge generation and transmission. Doing so, he argues, will show that there are substantively different norms governing the two types of knowledge acquisition. I offer an alternative way of cashing out the difference between transmission and generation in non-normative terms.
