It seems that collaborative nature of acquiring and producing knowledge in science and technology disciplines has to transfer to “more traditional” disciplines. If the Author stands for the authority, and knowledge creating is an evolving process that incorporates knowledge developed by others, how can we really say that only one person is the authority on a subject? Is it possible that the Author died a long time ago, but no one really noticed?
Is the death of the Author overdue?
