The Path of Knowledge: The Knowledge of Path


Marvin Eli Kirsh


California State University, Los Angeles

February 19, 2010


Abstract:     
The philosophies of Parmenides, Socrates, Aristotle, the science of Einstein is discussed with respect to a division of the empirica l and abstracted as they refer to the universe and universals. Methodologies of the natural and anthropological sciences are contrasted in order to discuss validity in the representation of nature. A physical model for the evolution of knowledge is presented that distinguishes both the conceptual and physical in terms of path and memory, the immaterial and the material, human activity as it mirrors symbolism and need. The universe, as infinite in description only, is reduced to a form whose nature aligns more readily with modern anthropological conceptualizations and is alternate to the more tangible and empirical, yet abstracted, content of scientific theory.
