Reflection on key knowledge issues-
The key knowledge issues include the different areas of knowledge and different ways of knowing. For example: How do we really know why things look smaller the further the are away from us?”
“Why do things look smaller the further the are away from us?”
-Our senses only give us a partial hindsight into the reality of the world. Example- Our eyes are unable to detect microscopic bacteriums and objects, so how do we know for sure that they really exist?
However, how do we know that what our senses and our idea of perspective can be trusted? what are the weaknesses and flaws with these ways of knowing? There are many flaws that relate to the idea of “perspective”. Firstly, to perceive a situation or an object, we have to be able to see the object. However, how do we really know what we are seeing is believable or true? Our senses do not develop to their full potential, and often we perceive objects and situations through past experiences.
