In the pursuit of knowledge by description, wrong assumptions are possible. When we try to discuss the knowledge of truths, it becomes clear that this type of knowledge, as opposed to the knowledge of things, has a problematic opposite called ‘error’. There exists a dualism; we believe things falsely as well as truly. Since many people hold different and incompatible beliefs, some of them must be erroneous. The urgent question on this issue is how to distinguish truly held beliefs from those falsely held. Perhaps, no satisfactory answer is possible, but before approaching possible answers, there must first be an investigation into the meaning of the concepts of truth and falsehood. This article is an approach to explain the human analysis and knowledge of the thought – ‘truth’.
Author Nurul Muhammad Haque argues that despite vast research – the impact on knowledge and belief in human lives are still mysterious. Sometimes what we know, either we can’t infer it or justify it, but we feel it. We’ve felt it our entire life. We start questioning our knowledge, belief, worldly judgments and human intuitions. It’s like a splinter, driving us to know more and to justify our conviction. It constructs the structure to defend what we know, believe and ultimately accepts to wake up. Ironically it’s not far from the truth. This study is part of an attempt to highlight the analysis of knowledge and belief, and the approaches to rational knowledge.
