Ineffable Kowledge II

  • Silvia Jonas


In the previous chapter, we first examined two familiar kinds of ineffable knowledge, knowledge-how and logical knowledge, and we noted that these two kinds of knowledge, together with propositional knowledge, enable human action and human cognition respectively. What characterizes these two kinds of ineffable knowledge is that they relate a subject to the world surrounding it: knowledge-how enables us to act in and interact with the world; logical knowledge enables us to process the vast amounts of propositional knowledge we gather every day, and to assemble it into one unified picture of reality.
