Abstract: This paper analyses the concept of a knowledge-based society. It suggests that certain important features of a knowledge-based society are better understood by appealing to the notion of a knower-based society, and discusses some implications following from this. One point highlighted is that the existence of a knowledge-based society would exert pressure on the need to define the ethical challenges of such a society. It is proposed that some of the most pressing issues in the knowledge-based era, such as those revolving around the production and dissemination of knowledge, actually go hand-in-hand with questions of value.
