Theory of knowledge is a yield of doubt. When we seriously really know anything at all, we innate lead into test of knowing, in the hope of being capable to discriminate the trustworthy beliefs from such as are untrustworthy. Knowledge is the principal intellectual attainment studies of epistemology. Virtually all theorists agree that true belief is a necessary condition for knowledge and it was once thought that justification, when added to true belief, yield a necessary and sufficient condition for knowledge. All of us have an innate knowledge, concepts, forms, or universals that are an essential and inborn part that compose our mind.
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
For many, belief is the most obvious and basic aspect of religion; it’s categorized as the doctrinal dimension because followers of a religion usually believe in its teachings. These doctrines originate from religious experiences and myths. Attention is devoted to ethics and there are multiple teachings that tell us how to act while we live in this world. Worship is carried out through rituals that often enact a myth or sacred story. The communal aspect of religion is significant to most people because the sense of belonging is found to be empowering - it fortifies religions and results in a form of organization including a hierarchy of leadership.
In religion, faith plays a major role in the belief in a deity or God. Such believers may have never had a physical connection to the deity, but they believe that there is a God. Suspension of disbelief requires knowers to use imagination as a source of knowledge as religion can be viewed as imagination that guides the understanding of possibilities that God or certain deities exist, but faith (as a way of knowing) creates a sense of strong belief in a deity or God; on the other hand, science mainly uses logical information to gain knowledge, but through an imaginative
The two I will discuss are history and the natural sciences. Before I do delve into these areas of knowledge it must be said that knowledge is a broad term that in both of these areas of knowledge most knowledge is gained through observations, thus a form of sense perception, and through intuition. Though in other areas of knowledge it is different like in religious knowledge systems most knowledge is based in faith and not observations or intuition. In both history and the natural sciences most if not all knowledge is created through some form of observation or intuition. Though these observations too rely on faith and reason and not just sense perception and intuition.
Simply because you do not understand the things which are not empirically observable does not rule out the fact that it is non-existent, and hence irrelevant. Everything cannot be subjected to empirical observation, and analysis. This notion of religion and its importance in the society is totally bias and narrow minded, even love cannot be scientifically verified yet the atheists and scientists profess love to their loved ones. Most problems that religion is having emanated from man’s manipulation, and misinterpretation of religion, and its doctrines in order to serve his own selfish interest or
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
The value of knowledge is often defined through its application. An argument can be made that if knowledge isn’t recognized, there is no real value towards it hence it has no use. Therefore, it is important that we recognize and understand the importance of knowledge in the application of the real world. However several arguments suggest the idea that knowledge is valuable to a certain extent. Areas of knowledge such as Mathematics and History both provide valuable applications to the real world.
Religion provides mankind with regular worship practices, goals and aims to motivate themselves and personal identity, personal emotional needs and a purpose in life which aids in developing one’s personality thus creating peace and unity. Without the structure, order, and meaning that religion can provide, many people would feel like their life would be lost and out of control. When speaking about religion, there are various views regarding the importance of it in today’s society. According to “The Real Truth Magaizaine”, the problem with religion is people, not religion in itself. Religion is a set of rules and guidelines but in the hands of emotional, ego-centric beings such as us; there is no wonder why we experience so much conflict and chaos; religion itself cannot harm people; it is people who harm
Even though the information obtained were all the same, the understanding of each individual is dissimilar and thus each individual gain different level of knowledge. This directly expressed that knowledge learned cannot be reproduced identically by another person but an identical information is able to be reproduced (Surbhi, 2016). On the whole, all knowledge is comprise of information but not all information is knowledge (Surbhi,
