Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

This raises the issue of the distinction between knowledge and understanding.

  1. This distinction may be illustrated by the example of games, such as chess, with rules that are applied recursively. The game is not understood simply by learning the rules. A child may quickly learn the rules. This corresponds to knowledge. However, playing the game intelligently may occupy (some would say "waste") the lifetimes of supremely able adults. This corresponds to understanding.
