The dual aspects of knowledge
This second module is devoted to one of the most important concepts of the Theory of Mathematical situations namely the dual aspect of knowledge: situational knowledge (“connaissance” in French) and institutional knowledge (“savoir” in French). This module is the basis for the other modules and can be considered as an introduction.
In this module, we also introduce the example of cars and garages situation which will be developed in the following modules.
