Introduction

This article is divided into two parts. In the first part, I discuss some general connections between knowledge science and philosophy, cf. section 1. In the next sections, I present a philosophical and methodological discussion of the definitions of knowledge and tacit knowledge together with their possible classification. The minimal set of conditions which are necessary for an adequate grasp of the phenomena of knowledge and tacit knowledge is presented. Also, the conversion mechanism of tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge is described. The different types of knowledge with the corresponding kinds of the relevant tacit knowledge are given.
