Abstract: This paper reports on a preliminary attempt to examine the relationship between community knowledge advancement and advances in understanding made by individual learners based on Popper's (1971) Darwinian theory of knowledge and the view that theoretical, more abstract knowledge is at a higher level than specialized instances of that knowledge. The study is carried out using online discourse data collected over a period of about two weeks in the context of an international knowledge-building program.
