What is Tacit Knowledge? - Theoretical Speculation
Person in Charge of the Project：Akisa Mako
Embodied knowledge is tacit in nature. Although we try hard to represent by words what our body understands, we would feel that something significant or essential is not represent-able. However, it may not be true that tacit knowledge holds independently of words or conceptual things; external representation of fragments of thoughts may change interactions between our body and its environment, and that seems to contribute to formation of tacit knowledge. This project proposes our hypothesis about what structure tacit knowledge has in our mind, and what relationships it has with our words or conceptual things.
