Abstract

There is a tension between expertise and equality. The work of experts is political - not neutral - and usually serves the interests of employers. Yet jettisoning all expertise would be disastrous, because so many essential operations of society depend on skilled performance. This tension can be addressed by challenging the most damaging facets of expertise - especially expertise in the service of domination - and fostering expertise in equalising power.
