Knowledge. Based on the classical definition of knowledge, which was presented by Plato (in the dialogue Theaetetus), knowledge is a justified true belief. The epistemological literature has thoroughly debated this definition; still, it is generally accepted.

Knowledge is embodied as a thought in the mind of the knowing person or as documented statements, written or recorded, in real documents
(C. Zins, 2011).
