Can knowledge be transferred or transmitted - OR - Knowledge comes out of learning and practice alone?

R & S, Philosophy Section people may be able to throw some light.

Update:

Nameless: I agree with your valid point. How do you know that the person is having pure mind or impure mind. Pure mind can of course perceive correctly. Can u please enlighten on this.

    Hi Naguru,

    Both.

    Sure knowledge can be transferred and transmitted through books

    and now through the internet.

    As I transmit and transfer my ideas and knowledge to you

    and you help thousands of others.

    Good Luck & Best Wishes.

    The question has been answered and selected already, but I have wondered for a while who Naguru was, because I liked many of 'his' answers previously.

    As already mentioned, knowledge IS transferred and learned, but these only form the basis and starting point of ... whoever, the relay, so to speak. It's only the genial mind that can surge and go beyond the previously learned from precessors. Marconi didn't 'invent' the Radio out of the bue, but built on previous knowledge, studies and research. Nietztsche as well as Freud, etc. did the same.

    I hope we agree on this.

    Depends on your definition of what "Knowledge" is.

    Going by the Webster Definiton, Knowledge is;

    information, understanding, or skill that you get from experience or education. Awareness of something : the state of being aware of something.

    If you want to use that small Definition, Knowledge can only be gained through "transfer", the passing on of information. For example, suppose someone is put into a condition where they have had absolutely zero exposure to say, Light. For their entire Life, they have never seen or even considered Light. Then, someone hands them a Flashlight. With absolutely no previous exposure to Light, they may have new Information, they've "learned" of light, but they have still have no Knowledge of Light. they have no way of understanding something that they previously had not even comprehended.

    Although you are twice my age,

    Yet knowledge, time, destiny and mistakes never notice your age, religion, cast, creed or preference,

    The answer to your query :- whatever it is that you are today is because of all the Rituals of ancestors carried on to ensure you receive it in a form of knowledge that they passed on to you and since you have discovered the same via curiousity, practice and an effort to learn, explore or know by posting the related question on Yahoo answers is itself a vindication, revealed by the source of mother nature, stating that knowledge can't merely be transmitted, transferred, practiced or learned... It also has myriads of path like zeal, zest, inclination, fascination, concentration, contention, devotion, dedication, reasoning, aptness, promptness, respect, courtesy, honour, exposure, experience, will power, inspiration, passion, motivation, courage, self restraint, simplicity, chastity, tolerance, patience, altruism, sacrifice and the list goes on....

    Greatest gift that a man must be grateful is a long linear polymer found in the nucleus of man's a cell and formed from nucleotides, shaped like a double helix; associated with the transmission of genetic information (Commonly known as DNA).

    Furthermore, DNA has brought a modern man over the struggling times of stone age, transmitting him over the woods of apes prior..

    Knowledge has endless venues, unless your sight and vision ponders beyond or above the transmitted and practice based know how, instead of pragmatic modes of cognition *** noesis (Knowledge)

  • Knowledge can be transferred and/or transmitted. It is wisdom that must be learned from ones own experiences. :D

    I'd say both. A teacher can transfer his/her knowledge to their students, but that teacher had to learn that knowledge from studying/learning from a book.

    I think it's possible for it to be transferred, but I think the best way to gain knowledge is through practice and doing yourself

    I think intellectual knowledge can be transmitted, but wisdom comes from experience and practice.

    Knowledge is transferred. Wisdom is learnt alone.
