Platos view of Knowledge I believe that one of the most interesting parts of this course was learning about Platos view of knowledge He basically believed that there was a nature behind the knowledge He believed that in order to have true knowledge you first had to have evidence of something believe it and then it be true Knowledge was the correspondence connection and relationship between reality and the extra mental reality In order to have knowledge there also must be a knower present This whole idea may seem like it doesnt really matter in the whole idea of things but it really is important I find it interesting especially in this part of my life because we seem to be surrounded with people who are so much more knowledgeable than ourselves Its very intimidating but Platos idea of the nature of knowledge helped me to not feel so inferior Many people in a college scenery may seem very knowledgeable but not have anything to back it up causing it to not be true knowledge that they possess For example everyone wants to give the impression that they are smart in all subject areas in college Many students in class will even ask pointless questions that are irrelevant just to seem like they have knowledge on a subject Platos view is interesting to me because it takes more than words to be knowledgeable The student must also be able to prove their knowledge as well as believe it and it be true In college we are all here to learn Nobody is all around knowledgeable or they wouldnt need to be here To an extent I think everyone wants to give the impression that they are very smart College then becomes an intimidating game Someone doesnt just possess knowledge as far as Platos concerned Knowledge is something acquired that is learned with significant evidence to back it up Platos view
