Accept the three-fold distinction between explicit, explicable-implicit, and inexplicable.

The modification was suggested to Scientonomy community by Maxim Mirkin and Hakob Barseghyan on 28 December 2018.1 The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.

Preamble

The traditional distinction between explicit and implicit (or tacit) doesn't do justice to the body of knowledge that hasn't yet been explicitly stated but can - in principle - be openly formulated. Thus, traditionally, tacit knowledge would denote both the knowledge that has not yet been explicated by an epistemic agent as well as knowledge that is in principle inexplicable. To avoid conflation, we need to switch to a three-fold distinction that clearly separates explicable-implicit knowledge from inexplicable knowledge.

Modification

Accept the following three-fold distinction between explicit, explicable-implicit, and inexplicable:
