Capers Patterns of Knowing created a new outlook that viewed nursing knowledge as more than just knowledge gained from just science alone and these four ways of knowing were through empirical, ethical, personal and aesthetic knowledge (Chamberlain University, n.d.). Empirical knowledge is more like the perceived view, as it is based more so on grounded research. Aesthetic, ethical, and personal knowledge is more like the perceived view, as it focused on the more subjective views. Each of these different philosophical perspectives that Capers Patterns of Knowing address can enlighten widespread research methods for nurses in order to help us gain better knowledge to be able to describe, explain, predict and control nursing marvels (Hanucharurnkul & Turale, 2017). With that being said, how can we argue that one of these worldviews (received view and perceived view) is better than the other when it comes to the profession of nursing? -Mallory
