Details

Knowledge and Epistemology gets into some rather esoteric considerations for instance an analysis of the logic of statements like "this is wrong."

I recommend you take a quick read of the following

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epistemology

http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/epistemology/

http://www.iep.utm.edu/epistemo/

These things get fairly technical but there is plenty of room for discussion about what is knowledge. We all share personal experience where something we thought was knowledge turns out not to be so. this would be from inductive reason as opposed to deduction. Inductive reasoning is the stronger, by far of the two.

Due to my work on Reason which I hope to share soon Sam has agreed to facilitate this meeting to whom I thank. I think Sam would welcome others who might come forward and help so please contact him directly.

Someone take a photo and post it.
