In my IB Theory of Knowledge classes, we obviously often consider the question, “What is knowledge?”
“The difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something,” is a quote from Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman in this video. He’s describing what he was taught by his father.
I thought I’d share a few other examples I use, or will be using, in my class to help clarify this distinction. Please suggest more.
