Philosophers have long recognized the difference between two types of knowledge: knowing-how and knowing-that, where (roughly and very informally) the former is typically associated with skills and abilities, and the latter is associated with **propositions **(truths/established facts). In our everyday discourse we use the word ‘know’ for both types of knowledge, which creates some confusion. So, for example, we say things like:

Learning Is Overrated: Machine Learning vs. Knowledge Acquisition

_But there are several fundamental differences between __K_1 and _K_2, some of which are listed in the diagram below:

The difference between knowing-how and knowing-that

_Below we discuss in some details these opposing properties as they relate to __K_1 and _K_2 given above.
