Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to analyze the most dangerous tendency desire to maximizethe potential of knowledge in the organization. Therefore I put the thesis that thedanger flowing from the modern programs of knowledge management in organizationsis to deprive the knowledge of her moral right to be responsible for the truth. Instead,it is proposed to treat knowledge as a capital or resource organization. In the secondapproach, knowledge is becoming a product of a particular person, subject to furtherprocessing and use. If knowledge is primarily a resource and capital all moral limits ofreason during the creation, processing and use shall be considered as anachronistic andanti‑development.One of the extreme effects of knowledge management as a capital,undermining the tradition of its creation, it may be the destruction of civilization conditionsfor the development of knowledge as an effect of the approximation to the truth,which is a kind of “death of knowledge”.
