THE object of the following paper is to consider what it is that we know in cases where we know propositions about 'the so-and-so' without knowing who or what the so-and-so is.

Knowledge by acquaintance We have knowledge by acquaintance of x if we are directly aware of x without the intermediary of any process of inference or any knowledge of truths.
