   schema:description "Their thesis is that Japanese and Western societies and companies have developed different understandings of what it means to learn and to innovate, but the way forward is through a synthesis of both styles. Knowledge is taken as the basis for what an organization does, but it's important to know that creating knowledge can be as important as processing knowledge. A key idea is that some knowledge is tacit (i.e., internalized) and other is explicit. Western philosophy is described as having struggled to understand whether knowledge is based on what we experience (empiricism) or inherent truths (rationalism), and to have focused more on explicit knowledge. Japanese thought has tended to treat tacit knowledge as more important (but not really addressed epistemology as a philosophical tradition)." ;
