Abstract: "Why does the history of useful knowledge matter? Quite simply, because useful knowledge (in its classical sense of the 'useful arts' -- S&T) is the basis of our current prosperity. It is worth emphasizing because it contains one of the most important answers to the 'dilemma of modern economic growth'."
