Shape of the Eyes

This is qualified as a dissenting thought.

  • When may a search for wisdom (philosophy) become a search for knowledge (science)?
  • When we define and decide on on a notion of what knowledge is and how it is to be sought.
  • Can one find knowledge without looking for it?
  • One may find things that may become knowledge with reevaluation rather than search, but until we have that framework knowledge is not definitionally meaningful.
  • Is reintegration of past events as valuable in science as prediction of future ones? Are we not better off not seeking material that may be reevaluated into science?
  • Depends on the notion of science we make for a field. Each field differs a bit
Dissenting because in my main framework, I do not make this exact distinction between knowledge and wisdom, plus I consider philosophy to be a superfield that contains science.
