  1. Introduction
    1. How does one's perspective affect the gaining of knowledge
      1. Name the AOKs and WOKs
        1. factors that affect perspective
          1. Keywords: knower's perspective, pursuit of knowledge
          2. AOKs And WOKs
            1. WOKs
              1. Memory
                1. Faith
                  1. Reason:
                    1. Emotion
                    2. AOKs
                      1. Indigenous knowledge systems: how culture plays an important role in perspective
                        1. Natural Sciences: perspective doesn't really make a difference in the pursuit of knowledge (counter-claim)
                          1. Mathematics
                        2. Counter-arguements
                          1. Example: In History, the knower's perspective is not important because events that took place in the past (facts) cannot be changed depending on different perspectives
                            1. In Mathematics (personal experience) perspective is not essential either as everyone perceives the calculations in the same way regardless of their different ways of thinking. However, there can be different methods of solving problems and different people find different methods easier.
                              1. Example: Euler's formula
                            2. Arguements
                              1. In the arts, for instance in poetry (literature) , each person perceives the poem in a different way. Example: English (literature)
                                1. Use modern art to show how people of different ages perceive it, i.e., generation gap - Jackson Pollock, Number 31
                                2. personal knowledge and shared knowledge (personal knowledge is shaped by shared)
                                  1. E.g. FIFA World Cup, Ethiopia Trip
                                3. Other knowledge issues
                                  1. How reliable is perspective in the pursuit of knowledge
                                    1. To what extent can the knower decide whether or not the perspective is the main factor in the pursuit of knowledge?
