Using information technology to gain and manage knowledge What is knowledge in a business? Using knowledge in your business isn't necessarily about thinking up clever new products and services, or devising ingenious new ways of selling them. It's much more straightforward. Useful and important knowledge already exists in your business.
References and Further Reading 1. Kinds of Knowledge We talk of knowledge: But what is knowledge? We can best answer that potentially complex question in several stages. Let us begin by considering whether there are different kinds of knowledge. Epistemologists have contemplated at least the following general possibilities.
Knowing by Acquaintance Your knowing a person, it seems, involves direct interaction with him or her. Otherwise, at most, you should claim only that it is almost as if you know him or her: Nonetheless, could you know facts about a person without ever meeting him or her?
If so, there could well be a kind of knowledge which is different to knowing a fact; maybe knowing a thing or entity such as a person is distinct from knowing a fact about that thing or entity.
Bertrand Russell : With these, we can designate individuals with whom we have not interacted. Then we can formulate claims using such descriptions. Some of these claims could be knowledge. Thus, we may open up for ourselves a world of knowledge beyond what is revealed by our immediate experiences.
Knowledge-That Most philosophical discussion of knowledge is directed at knowledge-that — such as knowledge that kangaroos hop, knowledge that koalas sleep most of the time, knowledge that kookaburras cackle, and the like.
Knowledge by description mentioned in section 1. In principle, knowledge-that is the kind of knowledge present whenever there is knowledge of a fact or truth — no matter what type of fact or truth is involved: It will therefore be the intended sense throughout most of this article. Knowledge-Wh But should knowledge-that receive such sustained and uninterrupted focus by philosophers?
Here are some of them collectively referred to as knowledge-wh: How should these be understood? The usual view among epistemologists is that these are specific sorts of knowledge-that.
For example, knowing whether it is 2 p. Knowing who is due to visit is knowing, for some specified person, that it is he or she who is due to visit. Knowing what the visit is meant to accomplish is knowing, for some specified outcome, that it is what the visit is meant to accomplish.
Knowing how that outcome is best accomplished is knowing, for some specified description of how that outcome could be accomplished, that this describes the best way of accomplishing that outcome. Still, not everyone will assess these examples in quite that way. Note a variation on this theme that is currently being developed.
Called contrastivism, its basic idea is that perhaps always; at least sometimes to know is to know this rather than that. For different versions, see Schaffer ; ; Morton Consider the example of knowing-who.
On contrastivism, you could know that it is Fred rather than Arjuna and Diego who is due to visit; and this might be the only way in which you know that Fred is due. Your knowing-who would be your knowing that it is Fred as against Arjuna or Diego who is due to visit. This remains propositional knowledge, nonetheless.
Knowing-How Gilbert Ryle ; made apparent to other philosophers the potential importance of distinguishing knowledge-that from knowledge-how. These seem to be skills or at least abilities.
Are they not simply another form of knowledge-that?
If Ryle was right, knowing-how is somehow distinct: Might knowledge-that even be a kind of knowledge-how itself, so that all instances of knowledge-that themselves are skills or abilities for example, Hetherington a:a different kind of person-perhaps one more vulnerable or less adaptable to change-than we imagined ourselves, knowledge can shake our operating framework in unwelcome ways.
Maintaining ignorance is a way the current self can extend itself, avoiding the THE BURDEN OF KNOWLEDGE " "-§ " 59 ° ' ". May 14, · Riot said that they would never implement champions like DotA's Invoker because it's a "burden of knowledge", or in other words because it's too .
Depending upon the individual and the type of knowledge, knowledge can be a burden.
"Knowledge" is, obviously, a hopelessly broad term, and it would difficult to argue that having enormous. Different social arrangements would bring into being different ways of thinking and acting, new aims and values.
In that sense, possibly knowledge is an artefact, created by us in social groupings, used by us in those same groupings — often wittingly and deliberately so.
Knowledge can be used in various ways, some of which could well. Different social arrangements would bring into being different ways of thinking and acting, new aims and values.

Knowledge can be used in various ways, some of which could well. This lack of knowledge presents a major challenge to discovering ways to prevent the condition and to treat those infants affected by PTB.
Second, while there are several evidence-based clinical and population-based interventions that can reduce the risk of PTB and associated infant mortality, the coverage rates of these interventions in low.
