It seems like we know many facts about ourselves and the world around us, even if there vastly many others we know that we don’t know.
What does it mean to know something? I know my own name, surely. And I know that I am writing this at this very moment. Most of us feel comfortable saying we know many things—we say so in everyday life all the time.
However, what does it really mean to know, rather than just think or believe? Can we establish strict rules for what constitutes knowledge and what does not? Our upcoming show, What We Know—And What We Don't, delves into some of these questions.
