WHAT IS THE COLLECTIVE WISDOM HYPOTHESIS?

This essay explores the emerging theory of collective wisdom in light of existing and similar theories. Collective wisdom has been defined by philosophers, authors, researchers, organizational consultants, and others in a number of ways. Many believe that collective wisdom represents a level of knowledge and wisdom that cannot be accessed by any one individual; rather, collective wisdom can only be experienced by groups that are functioning in certain states. However, for the collective wisdom hypothesis to move forward, an important question must be addressed: is collective wisdom simply the repackaging of other, similar theories of social intelligence or transactive memory systems?
