What is the nature and scope of epistemology?
January 23, 2008
please, i want to know the nature and scope of epistemology as an undergraduate student studying philosophy? What are the expectation and figures in epistemology?
Michael - Nigeria (15193)
Epistemology is the philosophy concerned with the nature and scope of knowledge. It is the kind of knowledge usually considered as propositional knowledge. Knowledge implies belief such that something will prove to be useful or successful in some sense. A person can believes something he thinks is true but be mistaken. This is not the case with knowledge, where you know it is true or false. Epistemology addresses such issues and the question "What is knowledge?"

Some people are blessed with better capabilities in various areas than others. Some can learn easier, some can play music almost naturally, and some can run faster. But that does not mean they will be the most successful.
Many who have exceptional mental capabilities soon become bored in school or are pushed ahead such that they don't fit in socially. The student that is motivated to learn and enjoys the challenge can often move ahead of the genius who does not fit in or who has no ambition.
Also, much success in life comes from getting along with other people. Often a genius has much knowledge but cannot communicate on an ordinary level.
