Knowledge Arne Naess Kann man Wissen erreichen? in Skirbekk, Hrsg, "Wahrheitstheorien" Frankfurt, 1996
I 398
Knowledge/Naess: (E.g. About the apple in front of me) when I am drunk, I might grasp at nothing. In our search for knowledge there is no such thing. An increase of evidence can perhaps be estimated or even measured, but not an approach to knowledge. The gripping does not happen but this does not comply with the grasp at nothing. The distance between the truth (sic) and reaching the truth cannot be accurately determined. From the side of proving there can be no zero point determined.
((S) VsNaess: Naess oscillates between approaching knowledge and approaching truth.)
