Everyday Knowledge and Common Sense KnowledgeDecember 21, 2019
This is the most common and the kind of information we all know more or less; everyday knowledge, common sense knowledge or formerly iy amiyane ” information.
Everyday knowledge , as its name suggests, is the “ordinary knowledge insanlar that people have obtained in their daily lives and as a result of their most ordinary experiments .
For example, everyone, even the most ordinary person, knows that the rain wets and the fire is lit; He calls red red hot things hot things. Again, thanks to such information, one knows that food will satisfy hunger and spring will come after summer. This kind of information is not obtained as a result of a conscious research method, it is inevitably acquired, unwittingly and systematically in nature . It is only the result of life, the use of the senses, the most primitive kind of experiment, and it is not based on any conscious method.
Scientific knowledge and philosophical knowledge can be mentioned as two examples of knowledge that exceed the daily knowledge or common sense knowledge by using conscious methods.
