What constraints are there on the pursuit of knowledge

 
(What actually intervenes with me actively trying to gain knowledge?
Object 1: Overtime constraints become smaller, due to technology
Object 2: Overtime constraints become greater, due to dissolving of sources
Object 3: Overtime, constraints remain same, due to physical human limitations
 
👉🏻
Object 1: Telescope in Bromsgrove School
1.
Identify the object and its real world context
The discussed object sits in the Bromsgrove School Observer and got donated by “include name” 2017. The discussed object is a “ti- observe” produced and sold by “include name” early 2012. It is being used to magnify and therefore observe.
2.
Explore the link between the object and the IA prompt
1.
What does the object illustrate about the prompt?
Technology helps decreasing constraints hindering the persuit of scientific knowledge
A telescope can magnify to a certain extend technology at a time allows
2.
What does the object illustrate about knowledge?
Technology helps in the advancing of knowledge. With advancing technological devises such as the Telescope, constraints on knowledge become smaller and might even open up new branches of technology
3.
Justify the contribution of the object in the Exhibition
This object shows how constraints on the pursuit of scientific knowledge become smaller with advancements in technology and the continuing of time.
4.
Record all sources and referred to and evidence provided

👉🏻
Object 2: The Merry Celeste:
1.
Identify the object and its real world context
The Mary Celeste was an American merchant brigantine discovered adrift and deserted in the Atlantic Ocean off the Azores Islands on December 4, 1872. The Canadian brigantine Dei Gratia found her in a dishevelled but seaworthy condition under partial sail and with her lifeboat missing.
2.
Explore the link between the object and the IA prompt
1.
What does the object illustrate about the prompt
No recorded first hand sources of the event as the crew went missing
technological constraints back then constrained the amount of investigation being able to be done at the time
History passes bigger constraints on, as with time, documents get lost or prove as the actual boat decays with it chances of solving the mystery
2.
What does the object illustrate about knowledge?
This Objects shows how unsolved mysteries over time become less likely to be solved and that therefore Knowledge is dependent from history. (With increasing time, first hand sources dissolve and decay and information gets twisted)
3.
Justify the contribution of the object in the Exhibition
This Objects shows how constraints on the pursuit of scientific knowledge increase with advancing time, contrasting the telescope where over time, knowledge becomes greater
4.
Record all sources and referred to and evidence provided

👉🏻
Object 3: 50X-1000X Advanced Upright Polarized-light Microscope
1.
Identify the object and its real world context
The PZ620T is an upright polarized-light microscope with transmitted and reflected light, weights around 5.7 kilograms and got first released 2017 by the seller Amscope. The Imagine shown above displays the object in the biology department of the Frankfurt Goethe University.
2.
Explore the link between the object and the IA prompt
1.
What does the object illustrate about the prompt?
A modern light microscope has a maximum magnification of about 1000x. The resolving power of the microscope is not limited by the number and quality of lenses but by the wavelength of the light used for illumination.
White light specifically ranges from 400 to 700 nanometers (nm) in wavelength, whereas the average wavelength of that range is 550 nm.
This results in a theoretical limit of resolution (not visibility) of the light microscope in white light of about 200 – 250 nm.
2.
What does the object illustrate about knowledge?
Our knowledge of personally seeing any objects in the discussed microscope is impossible. Our personal eyes are constraining us from seeing any smaller then200nm. We can personally not magnify any bigger, while still using human eyes to witness
3.
Justify the contribution of the object in the Exhibition
This object shows how constraints on the pursuit of scientific knowledge with passing time and technology stay the same, as human properties physically limit what they are able to understand.
4.
Record all sources and referred to and evidence provided
 
 
 
Sources:
Stuff
Problem of no common language for scrounge and communication in general is going to be constrained in collab. ( a research paper published in a specific language)
Imformation diese with those blöd one historical time puts a limitation on knowledge persuasion
Telescope: technological fonstraibt
Language linguistic constraint
Marry historical constraints
Perdue ideas microscope, telescope, marry, dictionary
Per suit of knowledge less about individual but gerneral research of academic research
old
→ What is the constraint
How does this effect my ability of perusing knowledge:→ I am limited or not able to persue my want for knowledge
 
→ The persue t of knowledge →
Normally their conde for less thinking about individuals gaining knowledge, but academic research
 
Object 1: Telescope
1.
What is the constraint: A telescope can only magnify to a certain extend current technology allows
2.
How dies thes effect my ability of perusing knowledge: I am not able to fulfill the want for knowledge that is out of my field of view
Object 2: Research Paper
1.
What is the constraint: Their is no common language in which redsearch is written. This allowes for personal interpretation and misunderstanding in the translation of language
2.
How does this effect my ability of perusing knowledge: I will not fully understand a research paper and therefore will be limited to persue my want for knowledge in that area.
Object 3: The Marry Celeste : What knowledge are t\we tying to find out
What happened to the crew
1.
What is the constraint: All first hand sources have died during the event, technological constraints - historical constraints - document that might have existed are now destroyed - lack of ab from
2.
How does this effect my ability of perusing knowledge: As little first hand sources were generated, I can form little second hand knowledge based on that information.
Object 4: The Microscope
1.
What is the constraint: Because of wavelengths and stuff, we are physically constraint to only see to a specific, magnified depth.
2.
How does this effect my ability of perusing knowledge:
