dc.description.abstract Recent research expresses serious doubts on the \ concept of unlearning. It is argued that knowledge \ cannot be discarded or eliminated in order to make \ space for the creation of new knowledge. Taking into \ account the recent scepticism, we focus on the \ cognitive dimension of unlearning and propose an \ alternative conceptualization. Considering how far \ unlearning can go from a psychological/cognitive \ scientific perspective, we propose that unlearning is \ about reducing the influence of old knowledge on our \ cognitive capacity. This study: (a) investigates the \ unlearning process within the cognitive domain and \ on an individual level and (b) proposes unlearning \ process triggers that detract or facilitate the \ knowledge change process, which could subsequently \ contribute to unlearning on an organizational level.
