Knower and the ways of knowing

Women's Ways of Knowing

It is precisely this that marks out a problem as being of the true scientific spirit: It is not the source of the generative life of the soul which, on the contrary, it draws inward, preserving it from such diffusion, holding it to the love of the splendour of its Prior.

Clearly anything that comes into being after it, arises without shaking to its permanence in its own habit. To admit that human truth is essentially representative is really to admit that conception is something more than the mere "holding together of many elements in a connexion necessitated by their several contents".

This applies equally to the single object; there can be no intellection except of something containing separable detail and, since the object is a Reason-principle [a discriminated Idea] it has the necessary element of multiplicity.

If that agent says no more than "I am a being," it speaks [by the implied dualism] as a discoverer of the extern; and rightly so, for being is a manifold; when it faces towards the unmanifold and says, "I am that being," it misses both itself and the being [since the simplex cannot be thus divided into knower and known]: Given some external, there must be vision; and if there be nothing external the Intellectual-Principle [Divine Mind] exists in vain.

Then there are the glib and not too insightful dismissals. I have personally found the thinking of several late modernist and post-modernist thinkers very helpful in conceptualizing the reason for such diverse biblical interpretations. Now if these activities arise from some unexplained first activity in that principle, then it too contains the manifold: The text itself is capable of taking on almost limitless different meanings.

Constructivist epistemology

We are all at the same time some combination of reflectivity and un-reflectivity. Once we stop looking we often see It right away. Either we must exhibit the self-knowing of an uncompounded being- and show how that is possible- or abandon the belief that any being can possess veritable self-cognition.

It is for such students that is written this little book, with the hope that a better understanding of their own intellectual nature may lead to a purposeful cultivation of what is good in it and an eradication of what is evil.

But has our discussion issued in an Intellectual-Principle having a persuasive activity [furnishing us with probability]?

Thought Power

A philosophy which tries to explain everything by the life, ignoring 10 the forms, will find itself faced by dead walls which it cannot surmount. The thought is a reproduction within the mind of the Knower of that which is not the Knower, is not the Self; it is a picture, caused by a combination of wave-motions, an image, quite literally.

With regular and persistent'—but not excessive—exercise, the thought-power will grow as the muscle-power grows. Mary is a very connected knower.

Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow)

These images of images may be reached by any separated Knower in proportion as he has developed within himself the " power of vibration " above mentioned. For example, many Christians do not seriously reckon with the fact that the Bible itself is an object of knowledge.

Then each nation would recognise what is sometimes called " the personal equation", and instead of blaming the other for difference of opinion, each would seek the mean between the two views, neither insisting wholly on its own.

This quick overview of postmodernism, unashamedly made from my own perspective, is more than adequate for the task at hand. Everyone must have faith to be a Christian, but only a smaller number have the gift of faith. Those who even suggest something outside the dominant paradigm are often shamed by the guild, ousted or prevented from having jobs, etc.

Nor does it give the life of perception and sensation, for that looks to the external and to what acts most vigorously upon the senses whereas one accepting that light of truth may be said no longer to see the visible, but the very contrary.

I have already alluded to my understanding of scientific claims as modern equivalents to ancient myths. The series of events throughout Daniel 11 read like a history book of the early second century at least up until What, then, if the total combination were supposed to be of one piece, knower quite undistinguished from known, so that, seeing any given part of itself as identical with itself, it sees itself by means of itself, knower and known thus being entirely without differentiation?

Note that " epistemology " is the study of knowledge and how it is acquired.

Separate and Connected ways of knowing

We repeat that the Intellectual-Principle must have, actually has, self-vision, firstly because it has multiplicity, next because it exists for the external and therefore must be a seeing power, one seeing that external; in fact its very essence is vision.

Are we to think that a being knowing itself must contain diversity, that self-knowledge can be affirmed only when some one phase of the self perceives other phases, and that therefore an absolutely simplex entity would be equally incapable of introversion and of self-awareness?

To inquire what truth is, is one question; to ask how we know that we have judged truly, quite another. The Knower finds his activity in these vibrations, and all to which they can answer, that is, all that they can reproduce, is Knowledge.CHAPTER THREE: WOMEN’S WAYS OF KNOWING: A REVIEW AND CRITIQUE In this chapter I aim to provide a review and critique of Women’s Ways of Knowing: The Development of Self, Voice and Mind (Belenky et al., ).1 The ideas that this book have.

Belenky, Clinchy, Goldberger, and Tarule examined the epistemology, or "ways of knowing", of a diverse group of women, with a focus on identity and intellectual development across a broad range of contexts including but not limited to the formal educational system.

Participative knowing. The participatory paradigm asserts that we cannot have any final or absolute experience of what there is. In the relation of participative knowing by face-to-face acquaintance, the experiential knower shapes perceptually what is there.

Where do emotions come from? Our thoughts on the source of emotion are full of contradictions.

Constructivist epistemology

On one had, we are accustomed to thinking of the mind – by which we mean emotion, imagination, reason, and other conscious and unconscious processes of the brain – and the body as distinct and separate.
