TOPIC 3: In this section, we examine two theories about how we acquire 'knowledge' about the world around us. One way, known as 'empiricism', says that we learn the most important pieces of knowledge via our sensory perception. Another way, which is opposed to this view, is known as 'rationalism', which says that our most important and certain knowledge is acquired through reasoning alone.
Both of these theories must serve to answer a key question in Epistemology (the study of knowledge), which is this: Is there a difference between 'knowledge' proper, and mere 'belief' or 'opinion'? What do you think?
Descartes requires that what counts as genuine knowledge (as opposed to what we simply believe to be true or that merely seems true) must be absolutely certain and immune to scepticism.
Locke does not require that knowledge proper be absolutely certain and free from doubt.
Which is the more plausible theory of knowledge?
