This chapter discusses the purpose of the book, which is to explain the emergence of novelty in organizations and economies. That includes innovation in industries, technology systems (or ‘innovation systems’), and learning in organizations. It then describes the research questions, the main themes, and the perspectives and disciplines involved. It gives a reflection on the historical roots of some of the issues. It discusses the book's methodological position, which takes a realist view but also employs a constructivist theory of knowledge.

Keywords:   learning, organizations, economies, innovation, novelty
