A knowledge model of layers of techniques

The objective of this chapter is to substantiate the praxis of the knowledgecentered worldview as derived from the Quran and to show how this praxis applies to the specific case of technological change in a very practical way of unification of knowledge within the technological epi-phenomenon of the automobile industry in Malaysia. The characterization of dynamic technological change in the knowledge-induced sense will lead to an examination of the theory of knowledge-induced layers of techniques. Yet, here, we show how the knowledge-induced praxis, applied to technological change, presents an altogether different meaning to the concept of layers of techniques, which is contrary to the theory and implications of layers of techniques in the mainstream economic literature.
