What does one mean by knowing a person ? Knowing a person or knowing a fact are two different things .Knowing a fact means a comprehensive knowledge of the fact ,which is the philosophical sense of knowledge. In the case of knowing a person the word is somewhat loosely used to mean awareness of the person as an identity .

My own perception is that knowledge means recognition of the identity of a person or a fact in one’s consciousness .Thus I know that Seattle exists in America because my consciousness recognises its identity but there may be some place or some person in an African country whose existence I am not aware of.
