Have you ever identify something unknown to

you with it’s form and liken to another that is

familiar with? For example when you first saw a dog you look at the form

of it and memorise, then when you saw another one from another breed even if it

does not exactly look like the first dog you’ve seen ,you still call it a dog

because of their common apppearence and behaviour. They are not uniform but you accept them to be uniform just to obtain

knowledge easily and without detail. This way you know the name and

characteristics of the creature with their name ”dog”.This is how assumptions

of the existence of uniformities creates knowledge.

So, how can we identify ”assumption” and ”existence

of uniformities” in that manner? Assumption is an automatic system that

creates an illusion to suppose ,that affects cognitive ability. Existence of

uniformities is a way to knowledge and it is the reflective system that arises

from the presence of regularity. The pharase ”Without the assumption of the existence of uniformities there

can be no knowledge.” states that knowledge is obtained through the espousal

of homogeneity.This raises some questions that needs to be answered. In what

ways can assumptions be a valid source of knowledge? How does an uniformity

exist? Does it needs to be inflexible for all? ?nquisitons lead to knowledge

questions. For this claim ”What role does assumption of the existence of

uniformites play on obtaining knowledge?”is what really needs to be questioned

and it is the aim of the discussion.

I

believe that assumption of the existence of uniformities are absolutely

necessary for obtaininig knowledge, for the esposal of a regularity is the base

of induction and induction is what creates general perseivence of the

knowledge. Shared knowledge cannot be created without assuming the existence of

uniformities, because then every claim produced will have a one-time use and

that does not fit the definition ”Knowledge

is justified true belief.” for it apply to a greater timeline. The claim can

be identified with the arts and mathematics the most. These areas of knowledge

are founded on a set of more or less universally accepted definitions and basic

assumptions. Art use emotion as a currency to generate significance at a

personal level but reason provides a restrictive framework necessary for the

creation of meaning; artworks have their own inner logic. Like art, math is

also despite,or rather because of ,the strict confines of mathematical logic, is

an enormously creative subject, asking of it’s practitoners great leaps of the

imaginaton.There are close links between mathematics and the arts where formal

requirements for harmony or symmetry impose mathematical structures on a work.

So, how does art use

uniformities to obtain knowledge? It is through an array of mutual assumptions

that uniformities which exist in the

arts, function. Honore de

Balzac’s ” If we could but paint with the hand what we see with the eye.”words

clearly sets the relation between sense perception and the arts. In this

manner,it can be said that sense perception is an essential part of the arts.

Moviemakers use facial expressions that corresponds to different emotions that

are uniform for humanity to convey the emotion in an artwork. This way the

audience know how the mood of the movie changed which simply means the artist

managed to endorse the feelings of the characters and emphasised the meaning of

the artwork. For example in the movie

”Leon”, the protagonist is introduced as fragile, doubtful, exhausted, and fearful

upon her arrival at Leon’s apartment where the story takes place. Later on, we

see the blossoming of her character. This is an important aspect of the movie and

the emotions are introduced by assuming that the projection of them are uniform

for all humans. Actress’s eyes get watery and her lip points downwards when she

gets sad. This way audience know she is sad through their use of sense

perception.

Symbolist art uses uniformities fairly also. Visiuals

has great importance as premises of common sense realism. Induction is an active

ingredient used in symbolist art. Minimalist artists eliminate details to form

a simpler version of a complex thing. They assume that these simpler lines that

represent an object can be understood by the simplest outlines. This is a

generalization that the objects are perceived and recognized by their

significant characteristics and these characteristics are uniform to everybody.

When the admirer see the outline he completes the image by using imagination

and reason to liken to something that exists in real life and this way he knows

what this object is and the process is assumed to be uniform to all humans. This is the only way that the artwork can be understood

and known what it represents. Graphic designer Outmane Amahou created the

series”Art Periods”which represents every area of art with a simple outline

that represents the most known artist of the era. For example

”post-impressionism” art period is

represented with just an ear as an allegory for Van Gogh.

To what

extend does mathematics use uniformities to obtain knowledge? Arthur Eddington states that the mathematics is not there till we put it there.So, it can

be said that rationalization of every day calculations creates mathematics. Seminal

developements such as negative or irrational numbers have lead to big changes

in the way we view the world. In mathematics, the uniform limit theorem states that the uniform limit of any sequence of continuous functions is continuous. More precisely, let X be a topological space, let Y be

a metric space, and let ƒn : X ? Y be a sequence of

functions converging uniformly to a function ƒ : X ? Y. According to the uniform limit theorem, if each of the

functions ƒn is continuous, then the limit ƒ must

be continuous as well. If all the continuous functions are not assumed to be

uniform, then these proof theorems would not be known. This is the work of

reason that makes a human know the relation between them and the only

possibility to acquire this knowledge is through the assumptions that all

functions behave the same.

Reason is used in the finding of the mathematical

induction also. Mathematical induction is a mathematical proof technique used to prove a given statement about any well-ordered set. Most commonly, it is used to establish statements for

the set of all natural numbers.Reflective system that arises from the

presence of regularity is assumed to be the theory that all correct data sets

will suit this justification.This shows that they will all be uniform to be a

part of this equation.We know this data set is correct if we use reasoning to

use mathematical induction theory to test if the set obtained is correct in all

provisions.

Hovewer, another aspect to consider to know

if the knowledge is obtained through the assumption of the existence of

uniformities is if experiential knowledge containes uniformities or not. Experiential knowledge is a knowledge of particular

things gained by perception. Since sense perception is a WOK that works

seperately for all, it can not be very possible that all the knowledge gained

through it is uniform. However assuming like it is not is something totally

wrong to do. In fact, everyone can experince similar things. A loving touch, gives

the knowledge that the one giving the affection gives peace and

is something to be okay with.And a violent touch is something to be refrained

from and is known to be something to resist to.These types of knowledges are

also gained from the assumption of the existence of the uniformities.That’s the

response to the counter claim.

Therefore,conclusion

reached by me through a sustained consideration of knowledge questions is that

it can be believed that automatic

system that creates an illusion to suppose ,that affects cognitive ability

providing for the reflective system that arises from the presence of regularity

is the only way, necessary to obtaining knowledge and it is pretty apparent in

the concepts of everyday life as it is just justified in maths and the arts.
