This article addresses the role of knowledge agents in governance, focusing on codified products produced by socially recognized experts and scientists; categorizes these agents into knowledge actors (individuals), knowledge institutions (in their organizational format), and knowledge networks; and describes their work. It also considers the politics of knowledge or scientific competition and highlights the struggles between different modes of knowledge or what are often described as discourses, worldviews, and regimes of truth.
