What is knowledge?[edit | edit source]

Knowledge means to understand an idea or concept. When a person has the capacity and ability to use and act on an idea or concept understanding is achieved and knowledge is acquired. Knowledge may also be narrowly defined as an idea or concept that is understood and believed to be true. How knowledge is acquired is the subject of many theories and research efforts in the field of Epistemology.
