Epistemology in the literal sense means, Theory (Study) of knowledge.
If you think about it, knowledge is something we live for. Aristotle, in his book Metaphysics, says, “All men by nature desire to know.” After all, that is the underlying value of Kalampedia too. To know, to learn. But… stop for a moment, and ask yourself this question: what is knowledge? Is it same as information? Or is it just about knowing? Or maybe about believing? Epistemology enquires such questions and tries to make sense of knowledge itself.
