The dialogic relationship between knowledge and understanding is paradoxically the expression and creation of meaning. Understanding one's existence is an unstable-stable process of continually unfolding knowledge acquisition that is integrated into one's understanding, but that also gives birth to new questions about life and living-it-toward finding truth. Human beings are knowledgeable in the sense that we are the only beings on the face of the Earth that deal in meanings. Language acquisition is a process that serves as a good example of the interplay between knowledge and understanding. Knowledge thirsts for answers and the genuine philosopher or scientist understands that both pathways are self-correcting journeys. That is to say, philosophy and science provide answers until another replaces those answers. Science and philosophy are knowledge resources and often provide very practical ways of dealing with problems. Both are knowledge-producing projects for people to come to a better understanding of their existence.
