The study of knowledge. It is the study of how you know what you know and how you came to know.

A true subject-object fallacy.

A structure of verification.

A metastructure in which even when one is wrong one is right.
Kant created a structure of truth (epistemology) out of aesthetic itself. This had wide-ranging ramifications for aesthetic, will, and ethics. This occurred even though Kant used the term "aesthetic" to refer to form which was technically incorrect (aesthetic is contrapositive to form).

Marx also created an epistemology but his epistemology cannot answer Kant's epistemology because Marx created a structure of truth from form (formalism).

Structure of verification.

Also: the study of a structure of verification.

The blockchain is an example of an epistemology.

Epistemology can also be the study of blockchain and structures of verification related to it.

A non-threatening, often public, discourse; designed to identify, explore and possibly modify deeply held personal beliefs through the use of the Socratic method.
Through my exposure to street epistemology, it became evident to me that faith--as a foundation for sustaining religious belief--is unreliable. How could divergently opposing religious systems expect to use faith as a method of conveying revealed Truth, yet come to mutually incompatible conclusions? Answer: they can not.

/gerund phrase/

The application of any physical or mental knowledge acquired through the relatively sustained practice of side-walk surfing (aka skateboarding) to other domains, activities, or knowledge. Skateboard knowledge is necessarily applicable to other topics, since its very essence is the application of physical and mental knowledge derived from water surfing to activity taking place on non-liquid surfaces. However, skateboarding's evolution may be heading back to a more fluid medium, which might explain why skateboarders are so obsessed with air, as in "I'm catching big air" and "nice air dude!" As such, we may very well see flying skateboards in the near future.
<I totally landed that calculus problem!> The skateboard knowledge (epistemological skateboarding) applied here is as follows (skateboard knowledge in parentheses): if you keep trying to (land the trick) solve the problem, but (fall flat on your face) get marked off full points for it on your calculus mid-term, (get back up) practice solving the problem, (try again and again) and practice often, you will eventually be able to (land) solve the (trick) problem on the final exam.

Extraphysical Epistemology, also Epistemological Extraphysicalism, is the idea that extraphysics and everything related to the extraphysical cannot be studied by naturalist or positivist means as natural sciences are studied, but being necessary a development of an epistemology and methodology dedicated for the study of extraphysics such as of a whole philosophy and ideas for the study of extraphysics, such as it's almost impossible or literally impossible to study about extraphysics like natural sciences are and it will be literally impossible to get scientific evidences about them studying as natural sciences are studied. Believing that extraphysics and everything related to it are from an area separated from hard sciences and soft sciences, but a third area that could be called as extraphysical sciences or even as spiritual sciences.
"Extraphysical epistemology is a nice way to slove the problem about extraphysical things be considered as pseudoscience by materialists, positivists and physicalists as well. But it might take some years until we have a well developed extraphysical epistemology for start developing extraphysical mechanics, extraphysics and extraphysicalism as a whole."
