Asking how we know what we know and whether we can know anything for certain is not so popular in our information-saturated society. Yet this is the question that was at the heart of the philosophical project in ancient Greece and later kick-started modern science.

In this short tutorial you'll get acquainted with the modern take on the theory of knowledge, questions such as "What is knowledge" & "How much do we actually know?", the conflicts and puzzles that arise, and the implications for our everyday lives.
