• Research Paper on:
    Authoritarian Knowing and Scientific Knowing

    Number of Pages: 5


    Summary of the research paper:

    This 5 page report discusses the differences and similarities between authoritarian knowledge and scientific knowledge. Both ways of understanding, perceiving, or “knowing” and one is not necessarily “better” than the other, however each has its own unique characteristics. Scientific knowledge deals with real things that exist in nature--things that can be perceived by humans or detected by instruments. The authoritarian model of knowledge sees knowledge as a collection of information, a set of facts, a series of proposals or concepts that have been established to be true and are generally dependent on an interpreter of that information. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
