"The quote means, he does not claim knowledge of things that he is ignorant of which is a completely different than claiming no knowledge of anything."
Maybe that part did, but i'm talking about this quote: "I am better off than he is,—for he knows nothing, and thinks that he knows. I neither know nor think that I know."
Which to me, he's saying he is wise enough to know he doesn't have the ability to fully know everything, in which I agree. We don't either.
I think this could go for days lol. I understand your points, but I don't think you understand mine.
Who is the one that declares something a fact? Is it collective? And if it is what if you have a different perspective?
Like a person that can only see half of a picture because he is looking at it from a side angle, when the person in front of it sees the whole entire picture. Does that mean the first persons view is false because he does not SEE it the way the 2nd does? Let's say that everybody except one person sees it from a side angle and believes this picture they see to be fact, is the individual that's seeing the whole picture wrong if the majority says it to be?
Some can argue that both truth and fact are subjective.
Why does it say it this way on this link? http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/phl201/modules/Philosophers/...
