Knowledge from Personal Experience
Knowledge from personal experience is a type of knowledge and a way of acquiring it proposed by the Mohist School. In their opinion, knowledge is gained in three ways: by personal experience, by hearsay, and by explanation. To learn from personal experience means learning by examining or getting involved with things. It is a direct way of gaining knowledge.
Knowing comes from hearsay, explanation, or personal experience. (Mozi)
Observing something oneself is knowing by personal experience. (Mozi)
