This chapter presents two insights on the relationship of knowledge and professions in the context of the professional labor process of research scientists. First, as the labor process of scientists develops, they produce not only new knowledge but also new disciplines. All of these disciplines are technoscience, and all knowledge is increasingly processed through it or becomes the model for all knowledge production in the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities. Second, there is a disarticulation between scientists and practitioners. Practitioners in the biomedical fields increasingly depend on scientists doing basic research. However, the scientific knowledge itself is becoming noncommunicable to the practitioners who do not have the background to understand it.

Keywords:   knowledge, professions, professional labor process, research scientists, technoscience, knowledge production, practitioners
