This paper first relates that epistemology is the subdivision of philosophy having to do with the importance of individual knowledge. Next, the author traces the epistemological debate from Plato's analysis to the constructivist methodologies of the Renaissance. The paper concludes that the subject of epistemology, which has seized the majority of thoughts, is theoretical disbelief because the most unrelenting predicament in the supposition of knowledge is not what constitutes knowledge or from where it originates, but whether there is such a phenomenon at all.

From the Paper:

"Despite the fact that truth-seekers are incapable of offering a commonly understood breakdown of knowledge, individuals are capable of comprehending, in general, what is being spoken of when words such as knowledge as used. Fortunately, this points to the fact that it is possible to attempt to explain epistemology, while allowing the elementary query as to what knowledge actually is, unanswered. There are good and bad ways to develop ways of thinking."
