Philosophical knowledge and Scientific knowledge – Types of knowledge – building knowledge Part 3


philosophical knowledge and scientific knowledge Forms or types of knowledge building knowledge – part 3 We have several types of knowledge vulgar or empirical, religious or theological, philosophical, scientific etc. We explore to know what exists, to recognise the reality. In this video, I’m talking about the philosophical knowledge and scientific knowledge. Lilibeth: What is philosophical knowledge? Third type: The philosophical knowledge. Peter: Third? Is it the first type? No No No No Peter. The first and second type
have shown in the last video: empirical knowledge and religious knowledge. It is the third. Take a look at the table. The science isn’t a unique way to assess the knowledge and the truth Third type: The philosophical knowledge. The word philosophy (φιλοσοφία) comes from the Greek words φιλεiν: philein means “love”
σοφία: sophia means “wisdom” Love wisdom Philosophical and rational knowledge is based
on reason. Valuation: Based on hypotheses that can not
be observed scientifically. It represents a middle way between scientific
and vulgar knowledge, since it is born from the relationship of the human being with his
daily life, but based on the reflections and speculations that it makes on all immaterial
and subjective issues. It means rationality. It is systematic. It is the coherent representation
of the reality studied. It can not be confirmed neither refuted, because
it is unverifiable. It is infallible because it results in its
own reason to explain and discern. Accurate because the object of the analyses is the ideas that are not subject to direct observation. Some authorities also consider philosophical knowledge an intermediary between scientific
knowledge and theological (religious) knowledge. It responds to the great inquiries of humanity. Peter: It is shown in the table. Yes, Peter. Fourth type: Scientific knowledge
It is real because it deals with occurrences or facts It deepens the representation of reality seeking the reason of things. It is objective, its conclusions are based on experimentations and not based on daily
experiences or emotions or on what is sensitive. It is systematic, its ideas are systematised
both as a way of acquiring and validating. It is logically ordered thus forming ideas
theories and laws. It is cumulative, it appropriates knowledge
previously acquired. It is verifiable that hypotheses can be substantiated. What is not verifiable DOES NOT BELONG TO SCIENCE. It is fallible and changeable. It’s not ultimate, absolute, final. It is almost accurate, new propositions can reformulate existing theories. Scientific knowledge becomes obsolete. Lilibeth: There are a lot of kinds of knowledge.
You are right! Yes, Lilibeth. And here I have an essential
note only to remember, about the last video. The scientist has a competence. He is an expert only in some subjects. Their opinions aren’t scientific knowledge. We can’t mistake the scientist with the
science. Lilibeth: It’s a truth. We need to beware. Remember, it’s time to break paradigms and
