Russell, Bertrand (1905). "On Denoting." Mind, vol. 14, pp. 479-493.

Excerpts[edit]

w: On Denoting
  • Russell believes [...] that there are essentially two modes of knowing: knowledge by description and knowledge by (direct) acquaintance. Knowledge by acquaintance is limited to the sense data of the phenomenal world and to one's own private inner experiences, while knowledge of everything else (other minds, physical objects, and so on) can only be known by way of general descriptions.
