The study of Truth, belief and knowledge all fall under epistemology in philosophy. But whatthen is epistemology ? In my view, epistemology is the study knowledge , the process bywhich knowledge is acquired, the limits and power to of knowledge to transcend knowntruth. Philosophers have defined words like knowledge and belief to get a deeperunderstanding of Truth. Per Pardy, P. (2019) “ Knowledge is belief in a true proposition that aperson is justified in holding” ”. This simply means that for something to be consideredknowledge, it must meet a minimum criteria to justify that fact, this fact can be faith or belief. What then is belief ? Per Pardy, P.,(2019), “ beliefs are things (at least) people have.”Beliefs are also formed from propositions by the individual, if the proposition is false then thebelief is false.What then is Truth ? Truth is belief in justified knowledge. Truth is knowledge which isEternal, it is that knowledge which will not change even if every other thing around itchanges. It existed before all knowledge and will exist after all knowledge.
