Epistemology: Wednesday's Word Of The Week

The Lutheran Lexicon

From the Greek word meaning, "knowledge."  Epistemology addresses the questions of:
  1. What do we know?
  2. How do we gather our information and knowledge?
Epistemology is interested in the way in which one derives and understands knowlegdge.  While one's worldview is simply the lens in which they view the world around them, epistemology is the study of how that lens is formed and shaped.
