Knowledge - infological interpretation
Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The article presents an 'infological' approach to explain the sense of the term knowledge. Originally, the idea of such an approach was developed by Bo Sundgren (1973) and Börje Langefors (1980) to define the term 'information'. The concept was based on the assumption that 'information' can be viewed as a name of the context delivered by the message 'K' defined by an equation discussed by the author. By analogy, the term 'knowledge' (omega) can be interpreted as the contents of the set consisting of three elements of another equation, i.e. information 'I', context (C) of the problems 'Q' under solving, and the experience (D) of the user 'U'. The approach seems to be perspective for manifold analysis of 'knowledge'. Among others, 'omega' can be considered as a name of the relation combining the elements in the above-mentioned equation, which makes a good background for developing a 'relational theory of knowledge'.
