Knowledge

DEFINITION

The remembering of things previously learned. This may involve the recall of a wide range of material, from specific facts to complete theories; involving all that is required in the bringing to mind of appropriate information. Knowledge represents the lowest level of learning outcomes in the cognitive domain. Objectives of lessons which will increase a student's knowledge can be stated with such behavioral terms as: arrange, cite, choose, check, define, describe, find, group, hold, identify, indicate, label, list, locate, match, memorize, name, narrate, observe, offer, omit, outline (stating a format), pick, point to, quote, recall, recite, recognize, record, relate, repeat, report, reproduce, say, select, show, sort, spell, state, tally, tell, touch, transfer, underline, and write. The next higher thinking skill is comprehension.By the way, the often heard remark, "I don't know anything about art, but I know what I like," really means, "I don't know much about art, but I like what I know."Quote: "Art is nothing tangible. We cannot call a painting 'art' as the words 'artifact' and 'artificial' imply. The thing made is a work of art made by art, but not itself art. The art remains in the artist and is the knowledge by which things are made." Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy (1877-1947), Indian writer. See definitions of art. "We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time." T. S. Eliot (1888-1965), American poet. "Little Gidding," in the Four Quartets, Harcourt, Inc., 1942. "To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you." Elie Wiesel (1928-), Romanian born writer and lecturer, survivor of Nazi concentration camps, and winner of the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize. "There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path." From dialogue spoken by the character "Morpheus" in the motion picture The Matrix, 1999, written and directed by Andy and Larry Wachowski (contemporary) Americans. "Knowledge is not something people possess somewhere in their heads, but rather, something people do together.? K. J. Gergen, contemporary American psychologist. "The social constructionist movement in modern psychology," in American Psychologist, 40(3), 1985, p. 270.
