Knowledge Society: Vision and Social Construction of Reality in Germany and Singapore. This book examines the processes of constructing knowledge-societies in Germany and Singapore and offers an empirically based definition of knowledge society. The author argues that knowledge societies are created by collective actors in society and are not merely the result or logical consequence of the technological developments in the information and communication sector. In particular, she focuses on the activities of the state as a collective actor who massively pursues the creation of knowledge societies in Germany and Singapore. With notes and bibliography.
