Repurposing and Legacy of Innovation

Matthew M. Mars

A chapter in A Cross-Disciplinary Primer on the Meaning and Principles of Innovation, 2014, vol. 23, pp 51-63 from Emerald Publishing Ltd

Abstract: Abstract Instances of innovation are not always limited to a single point in time. In some cases, innovations can be repurposed over time to address multiple issues and/or solve multiple problems. The functionality of particularly influential innovations can extend over time, settings, and conditions, in which case a legacy is established. In the current chapter, the concepts of repurposing and legacy are discussed using as a primary example the Greco-Roman arch.
