Question Answered

Implicit (Mirkin-Barseghyan-2018) is an attempt to answer the following question: What is implicit knowledge? How should it be defined?

See Implicit for more details.


Implicit is the opposite of explicit and, thus, it doesn't require more than a very minimalist definition. This definition creates a strong link between the two concepts and won't require any changes in the definition of implicit when the respective definition of explicit happens to change.
