...knowledge. It is a field that tries to address various questions that arise in relation to knowledge. For example it tries to address the real definition of knowledge. To explain what knowledge is, the tripartite theory of knowledge has been used as a working model and to describe it. The other question that arises in epistemology is the source of knowledge that we have. To explain the sources philosophers came up with two solutions where the knowledge we have is either got from experience or from critical reasoning. The question of the justification of beliefs also... Epistemology Introduction Epistemology is one of the most important fields of Philosophy. It deals with the study of the theory of...

...Knowledge is a very wide topic that if we started to talk generally about it, it would take several years to evaluate and conclude. Infact, the topic ‘knowledge’ is a recurring topic and for some philosophers, the studying of knowledge as a subject on its own has been in existence for as long as philosophy has been around. As one of those perennial topics, a team of philosophers decided to name the study of knowledge an epistemology. The word epistemology comes from two Greek words episteme (episthmh) meaning knowledge and logos (logo V) meaning reason. Others, philosophers nowadays would assign this subject as of fundamental importance; however, the subject about knowledge remains... Question 3...

...Knowledge The issue of knowledge is an issue that has never really been understood to its fullest since man has learnt to think. Over the millennia, writers and philosophers of every time have attempted to answer this question, and despite the magnificent attempts at its answer, no final word is available to mankind. The fact of the matter lies in the fact, that man cannot attain knowledge if he does not think; this, even as a proposition is considered to be impossible. By thinking of undertaking things, dealing with them, and ultimately being deceived by them, it becomes all the more evident to man that there is a reality that exists....

...Knowledge Different thinkers differently depict the term ‘knowledge’. The oldest idea came from Plato whose theory on knowledge is “justified true belief”. According to the theorists of Epistemology, belief is the most essential condition for gaining knowledge. If you have reasons for believing the truth you can gain knowledge. But if belief is not sustained by truth one cannot claim to know anything. For example, I may believe that the next prospective customer, whom I visit to make him buy my new insurance policy, will be more compliant than the last. But the person may turn out to be as disappointing as the previous one; in which case my knowledge is not based on truth, but only... On Concepts of...
