post-industrial society, post-industrialism Terms popularized by the publication of Daniel Bell's The Coming of Post-Industrial Society in 1973. According to Bell, a post-industrial society is one where knowledge has displaced property as the central preoccupation, and the prime source of power and social dynamism. It is therefore also one in which technicians and professionals are the ‘pre-eminent’ social groups, as well as one in which the service industries are more important than manufacturing.
society, post-industrial See POST-INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY.
