  1. Next to the correct answer, but I would like to use specific examples. Philosophy is not something that is very far from ordinary people. We all philosophize, but not all of us do it professionally. Each person faces the same philosophical questions, they must somehow be solved, at least take a ready-made answer that someone has already given – often just a philosopher.

    Sections of philosophy are usually distinguished by what issues they discuss. So, epistemology asks the questions “why am I sure of this?”, ” how can I be sure of my confidence?”, ” is it possible in principle to be sure of this?”. And if you think that the answers to these questions are obvious, remember that for almost 18 centuries from Aristotle to Galileo, no one thought to check whether heavy bodies really fall faster than light ones. Moreover, contrary to popular belief, Galileo did not test this either – he only logically proved that they should fall at the same speed, that is, even logically no one before him tried to reason, let alone experiments. And all this because people believed in the obvious, accepted their confidence as a given, without questioning it.

  2. Epistemology is knowledge in learning, and it is quite consistent with this statement. many people think or interpret this correspondence as one of the directions in philosophy. This has nothing to do with philosophy, because philosophy is the love of wisdom. “Seek wisdom, not knowledge. Knowledge is the past. Wisdom is the future.” With respect.

  3. I would explain it simply. Epistemology is essentially the science of true, learned knowledge. That is, there is knowledge as such, and there is a discipline that studies this knowledge from a philosophical point of view , with an eye to reliability and relevance.

  4. Epistemology is, first, a branch of philosophy that studies how we gain knowledge about different subjects, what are the boundaries of our knowledge, and how reliable or unreliable our human knowledge is.
