Going as far back as science and history can take us; we’ve evolved to a highly knowledgeable species. In this process of attaining knowledge, we have discovered many truths about our environment and our self. This truth further corresponds to the knowledge, which we can classify as either ‘personal’ or as ‘shared’. It is however, extremely important to consider the balance between these differences. It is empirical that ‘Knowledge’ varies from knower to knower.
Theory of knowledge Title 3 “The knower’s perspective is essential in the pursuit of knowledge.” To what extent do you agree? Name: Chetna saini Word Count: 836 Candidate session number: Candidate code: FGY942 I read a quote once, “The eyes see only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”, by Robertson Davies. This implies that you are open to every knowledge that comes in your way. Allowing yourself to accept different possibilities, opportunities, people’s views, suggestions and interests. However, every person has a different way of thinking.
The Effects of Perspective-Taking on Perceptual Learning 1. Introduction The perspectives that we adopt when interacting in the world play an integral role in the processes of thinking and learning. This notion is implicit in the way people speak informally about learning, such as when a tutor says to a struggling student "Maybe it would help if we approached this from a different perspective." In some areas of education, such as in history or literature, understanding perspectives is an explicit focus of the curriculum. And in everyday contexts, it has been suggested that perspective-taking is the primary mechanism with which humans are able to learn from others.
At first, we thought that knowledge is actually based on experience and that through these experiences we can understand how the world works. However, knowledge can also be reasoned with rational thoughts that are built in our mind as well in order to start off a beginning to understand further experiences. In this paper, I will look at the two different arguments about a method of acquiring
Peter F Drucker, an American author once said, ‘Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.’ Knowledge mainly consists of information, skills and opinions that are obtained through opportunities in life, encounters with individuals as well as education and life lessons imparted through education. In the modern world today, we pursue knowledge because it is useful for the pursuit of information. For many years, we, as human beings have strived to gain an advanced level of knowledge and information. A disagreement, in my opinion, is the opposite of logic; an argument that contradicts or opposes the evidence that has otherwise proven to be true. Disagreements act as obstacles that hinder the flow of pursuit of knowledge.
They never really seem to take into consideration the nature of ways of knowing that are involved, whether they form a network or not. Knowledge refers to the general information that can be interpreted and stored in the human brain. Knowledge is obtained through different ways of knowing namely emotions, reason, language, etc. The essay is set out to show whether these ways of knowing need to be used together in the process of acquiring knowledge. This question can be answered by arguing areas of knowledge
How shared knowledge can shape personal knowledge Justification Shared knowledge has been known to shape personal knowledge in various areas of knowledge. Throughout our life as individuals, we strive to harness different forms of knowledge. We acquire information from distinct sources in our community and society and then try to interpret them using our knowledge matrix and ways of knowing such as reason, language, and intuition. Knowledge can, therefore, be divided into two distinct groups, personal and shared knowledge. Personal knowledge is the knowledge that acquired through personal involvement and individual experience.
Does knowledge only add value to our academic pursuits, or can it enriches our lives in all different aspects? Can knowledge be purchased or is it built through experience and input? Humans have been haunted by these rhetorical questions that define our lives. In my essay, there are two kinds of knowledge; subjective and objective. Subjective knowledge is based on personal perspective, assumptions, or beliefs.
The use of personal knowledge, whether it be abolition or implementation, influences the creation of shared knowledge. Therefore, the value of knowledge is not only established as its application, but the lack thereof (Serpa, Gabriela). Knowledge, juxtaposed to fact, does not need to be the truth. In the 17th century, everyone knew that
Shared knowledge can have a big effect on our personal point of view. For example, a scientist who have a great idea about changing the way of transportation, but the only step between theory and realistic is not proven by someone before, and suddenly a scientist published a theory(shared knowledge) which is what they need, and that guy’s idea(personal knowledge) is changed by the shared
