General Scientific Knowledge and Common Knowledge

Miguel Martínez-Miguélez ( Universidad Simón Bolívar de Caracas (Venezuela)


This article describes the nature and it opposes characteristics and application of the classic scientific knowledge and the ordinary knowledge. Therefore, it makes emphasis on the epistemic approach to each one, on the mental sensibility that requires their reception, on the local and social environment in which they appear and are developed, on the epistemic matrix they imply, and on the science-art dimension in which they are located. The article finishes with a practical advice to undergraduate and graduate students.

Key words: scientific knowledge, ordinary knowledge, epistemic matrix.
