Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper introduces a knowledge model in which the types of knowledge are formed according to the nature of knowledge. There are two roots to our model: the first concentrates on a review and extension of the typologies of Polanyi and Ryle and adds new knowledge types; the second concentrates on a review of the intuition literature reformulating a range of different perspec-tives so as provide new insights. Subsequently we synthesize the extended typologies with our intuition findings into a new knowledge model which includes intuition as a knowledge type. This model distinguishes three types of knowledge, the facts, the skills, and the intuition; all three having focal and subsidiary parts. Moreover it is complete (i.e. it accounts for all kinds of knowledge), has great explanatory strength, and is easy to use. Thus we expect it to be useful for both researchers and educators in the field of knowledge management.
