Re: Interesting subject..
Aristotle identified three forms of knowledge:
Episteme = universally valid scientific knowledge,
Techne = skill-based technical know-how, and
Phronesis = a true and reasoned state of capacity to act with regard to the things that are good or bad for man.
If episteme is ‘know-why’, and
techne is ‘know-how’,
then phronesis is know-what-should-be-done.
Example: because no universal notion of a good car exists, episteme cannot answer the question “What is a good car?” That will depend on who is using the car and why, and it will change over time. Techne is knowing how to make a car well; phronesis is knowing both what a good car is and how to build it. Thus phronesis enables managers to determine what is good in specific times and situations and to undertake the best actions at those times to serve the common good.
