Knowledge

  • Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, information, descriptions, or skills, which is acquired through experience or education by perceiving, discovering, or learning.

    Knowledge can refer to a theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. It can be implicit (as with practical skill or expertise) or explicit (as with the theoretical understanding of a subject); it can be more or less formal or systematic. In philosophy, the study of knowledge is called epistemology; the philosopher Plato famously defined knowledge as "justified true belief", though this definition is now thought by some analytic philosophers[ to be problematic while others defend the platonic definition. However, several definitions of knowledge and theories to explain it exist.

    Knowledge acquisition involves complex cognitive processes: perception, communication, and reasoning; while knowledge is also said to be related to the capacity of acknowledgement in human beings.

    Reading, watching documentaries and other forms of education furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours. This website looks at the different aspects of knowledge. The proprietor of this website has learned a lot of knowledge from various sources over his lifetime.
