Knowledge

Information and the RelationKnowledge is a detailed familiarity with, or understanding of, a person, thing or situation. It can include facts and information, as well as understanding that is gained through experience. Therefore knowledge or wisdom is dependant from sensory perception.

Since the way we receive information in a context – a message – is very individually depending on the cultural, social and work environment, self-revelation, roll call, we need to make own logical and psychological conclusions to “produce” our knowledge. This form in each individual person a more or less different reality which accounts for more or less agreement on a common understanding.

In every walk of life people need problem-solving information and knowledge to make rational decisions about problems or challenges they face and task they want to accomplish. This problem-solving ability improves as people find and use information of value and turn it into knowledge, which has the potential to empower people to make good decisions.
