An Interdisciplinary Approach

In the field of philosophical investigation and Cognitive Psychology, knowledge of knowledge, knowledge about knowledge, knower of knowledge, process of knowledge and such other questions are eternal but never answered satisfactorily. Various theories have been speculated but no theory is found complete and self-satisfactory. Jain theory of knowledge is very ancient as well as of wide discipline. Jain epistemology deals with various aspects of knowledge, such as

 

What is knowledge,
What are the sources of knowledge,
How knowledge is generated,
What are the limitations of knowledge,
Is knowledge self-illuminative or illuminated by something other,
Does knowledge cognize the substance or itself,
Can knowledge exist by birth or it is acquired later,
Is extra-sensory perception possible,
What are the ways of extra-sensory perception
and so on.
