    Knowledge is deemed to be the increasingly important factor of production in creating economic and social value. Intellectual capital (IC) has emerged as a key concept encompassing this development. As such IC can be viewed as knowledge about knowledge, knowledge creation and how such processes might be leveraged into value. As a kind of knowledge in itself, however, IC is similar to other human constructs. IC has been created and modified by actors, cultures and history. Developing a critical understanding of IC requires a historical and contextual understanding of how IC has emerged and how IC is used. This paper, drawing mainly on insights from Foucault and Wittgenstein, conceptualises IC in very generalist terms as both language game and power in order to initiate such a critical understanding.
