Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on a primary role of senses in knowledge Paper must be at least 1250 words. Please, no plagiarized work!
The things that we see with our own eyes we will never deny that because to us nothing would be truer than that. The correspondence theory suits well to give senses the primary role in knowledge. According to this theory, all that we think of is due to what we see and what appeals to our senses. If we see a fight going on and if someone comes along and tells us that what we are seeing is wrong we would not agree with the person. The reason behind this is that it is impossible for us to deny things which our senses clearly present to us.
But again this approach has certain limitations as we see in our everyday life that some of the things that we experience in this world are beyond the scope of this theory. This is because this theory basically tells us about physical objects and things that we can actually sense and it does not give us a proper way out to ambitions, emotions, anger, and feelings because there is no place for them in this approach. Thus the question arises that how will the empirical view define these nonmaterialistic things.
This approach restricts itself to what tempts to our senses and it is more about physical objects. Hence things which are in our mind and are born within us that is immaterial objects cannot be explained properly through the senses. if we believe that God exists we cannot prove it through our senses because we have never experienced him apart from the very few mystical people who say that they have experienced the presence of God. This theory can also not explain much about the mathematical and scientific approaches.
This can be seen by a very simple example of digits that is when we say that five is a prime number and seven is the next prime number. These things are not physical but they only come with reasoning. .
