Knowledge is the awareness of or familiarity with various objects, events, ideas, or ways of doing things. When babies are born they have no knowledge to begin with as they are newborns. As they grow up they start to develop little bits of knowledge as the mature. Knowledge consists of three elements: 1) a human belief or mental representation about a state that 2) accurately corresponds to the actual state (is true) and that the representation is 3) legitimized by logical and empirical factors. For example, a child, when asked about the molecular nature of water, says “H 2 0” simply because he is parroting what he has heard. In contrast, a chemist who answers “H 2 0” has knowledge because his representation is meaningfully justified by much prior knowledge and careful work.
Numerous philosophers have incredible knowledge as they have created items we use in the world. Galileo invented the telescope to help see stars that are far away. Karl Benz had invented the car/automobile that helped a countless numbers of people back in the day to get from one place to another. Countless numbers of these inventors used their knowledge to be successful in their jobs.
Epistemology is related to knowledge. Epistemology analyzes the nature of knowledge and how it relates to similar notions such as truth, belief and justification. This branch focuses on four main areas of knowledge. Epistemology deals with answering questions that relates to knowledge.
On myBlueprint I took the knowledge quiz and it gave me topics that I am interested in. It stated that my top subject science was a 72%, and language arts and creative arts was a 17%. Numerous occupations that I could be that relate to these are doctors, nurses, teacher, speech helper, and a dance teacher/music teacher and countless more fields of work.
Subjects that I am interested in is science. I look forward to this class everyday because this subject can help me become a doctor or nurse. As I grow up and go into higher grades I might add subjects into my opinion of favourites, but as of right now this is the only one that interests me.
