Knowledge is entirely seperate from power. the only way they come together is by the will. I know some extremely well educated people who are socially inept and are unable to bring effort to social in thier own lives. Power is a will to effort, which has a different motivational structure as the will to knowledge.In our society we have an education industry that promotes and perpetuates the myth that knowledge is power. There are many MBA's and history PHD's driving cabs who will begrudgingly attest to that. A graduate has to take his/her piece of paper and drive it around, learning to market the skills contained within the knowledge so that they can add value and contribute to society.In many ways the university is like the priesthood, a sanctuary away from the harsh realities of the day to day struggle of the wage slave. the tenured professor lives in a cloistered academic retreat, kept by the state in an artificial environment proving that knowledge is power. in some ways the profes ...more

Knowledge is other people's experience. This experience they had gained after applying their knowledge. Likewise, the knowledge we gain are of no use to us unless we apply that knowledge for gaining more experience. The experience gained after applying knowledge makes us wise, it gives us wisdom. We can gain knowledge by reading about other people's experience through books, through instructions, through lectures, through perception. Wisdom can come only after applying that knowledge, and not before.

In normal conversation we use knowledge to mean: Knowing that (facts and information). Knowing how (the ability to do something).In philosophy, knowing that something is the case implies that what is known is true. Can we sensibly say that someone knows something, but it isn't true? We cannot know that something is the case unless we are able to show that it is also true.

The noble Quran says:-(2:29) He it is Who created for you all that there is on the Earth; He then turned to the sky and ordered it into seven heavens34 . And He has full knowledge of everything35 .
Expalanation:-*34. It is difficult to explain precisely what is meant by the 'seven heavens'. In all ages man has tried, with the help of observation and speculation, to conceptualize the 'heavens', i.e. that which lies beyond and above the earth. As we well know, the concepts that have thus developed have constantantly changed. Hence it would be improper to tie the meaning of these words of the Qur'an to any one of these numerous concepts. What might be broadly inferred from this statement is that either God has divided the universe beyond the earth into seven distinct spheres, or that this earth is located in that part of the universe which consists of seven different spheres.
*35. In this sentence attention is drawn to two important facts. First, man is warned against disbelief and re ...more

Contentment of your intellect, which ideally never is since knowledge is more deep than the vast sea and no human can encompass all of it in its true sense.
