Formation of Knowledge, How Does Knowledge Come Out?June 26, 2021
Knowledge is the name given to the product arising from the relationship established between the knowing entity, that is, the subject (subject), and the known entity, that is, the object (object). To put it more clearly, the subject (subject)’s interpretation of the object (object), making a judgment about it or making an explanation is called information.
There are many different views on what knowledge is. Let’s start with the most common and easy to understand. Human perceives the environment and the universe in which he lives through his sense organs. In this perception, there are two basic elements called “subject” (subject) and “object” (object). The subject, the knower, that is, the human; objects are known, that is, entities.
Information Formation Process
Knowledge is often defined as the product that emerges as a result of the relationship established between the knowing subject and the known object. The subject in this definition is a person who exhibits an active attitude; The object is the passive entity to which the subject is directed. In addition, information flow (link) also refers to activities such as perception, thinking, understanding and explanation.
A person who exhibits an active attitude consciously and purposefully turns to an object and makes it his subject. An information flow relationship is established between the subject and this object to which the subject is directed, and as a result of this relationship, knowledge is formed.
Knowledge is what is the product of the relationship established between the subject and the object as a result of the subject’s purposeful orientation.
HOW DOES INFORMATION REVEAL?
As a thinking being, one of the unique features of man is his ability to produce knowledge. In the process of producing knowledge, there are two elements: the subject (subject) and the object (object), which is the subject of the act of knowing. Knowledge is the subject’s representation of the object as a result of its purposeful orientation. A person first notices the events/situations around him. He then identifies some distinguishing qualities about these objects. Color, structure, size, length, etc. of the object. “Snow is white.”, “Iron is heavy.” as. This information is the purest form of our knowledge. In philosophy, the sub-discipline that investigates human knowledge, the possibilities, limits and sources of human knowledge is called epistemology, that is, epistemology.
