understanding a concept and also the necessary resources in knowing something (Goldman, 1978). According to the idea in question, it is not right to believe in something or a concept without questing the truth behind it. Therefore, the main objective of the analysis of knowledge

THE CRITICAL EXPLORATION OF PHILOSOPHICAL QUESTIONS 5 is to place effective statements that attempt to articulate the essential steps that lead to the truth of the matter at hand. It must be understood that the concept of analysis of knowledge aims at stating necessary conditions that distinctly relevant and mutually sufficient for proportionate knowledge and also goes further to adequately answer the question such as the how it takes for an individual to know something. Facts as justified true belief (JTB) incorporates three main components, and they help a lot in analyzing the concept of knowledge. Justified truth belief (JTB) It is also known as the three-way (tripartite). According to the knowledge in question, justified, true certainty is outstanding and satisfactory for knowledge (facts). JTB analysis is essential when it comes to questing issues that deals with knowledge and truth (Cohen, 1984). This section will discuss the three components of the JTB analysis. The first component truth condition explains that what is deceitful cannot be known or established, for example, Teddy Cruz did not win the 2016 US general presidential election and therefore no individual in the society knows that Teddy Cruz won the polls. An individual is only capable of knowing things that are true under the concept in the discussion. An individual can be poised about the plight of something, but unfortunately, it turns out that the person was wrong for example, convincing several people knew that Teddy would clinch the presidential seat until he lost the position (Donald Trump defeated him). According to Hazlett (2010), the term "knew" is not a factive verb; he also explains that the statement I knew teddy Cruz Teddy was going to win the seat as embroidered. On the other hand, truth at times doesn't need an individual to know or prove to them that it is true. In nut a shell, not all facts are established as real truth. Critically, the truth condition insists that truth is

THE CRITICAL EXPLORATION OF PHILOSOPHICAL QUESTIONS 6 metaphysical as different from the notion of epistemological. It argues that reality is a matter of how issues are and not how they can be expressed as real truth (Komblith, 1983). To a further extent, an individual is capable of arguing that only true things can be established; therefore, the person will not be articulating about how an individual can admittance the idea of truth. In conclusion, the concept of knowledge is a type of relationship with the notion of truth, which means to understand something is to have adequate access to a fact. Justification of condition is the last component of JTD. It provides more information about justifying the statement as true. It involves presenting well thought-out points to prove that something is true.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
