Mainstream analytic philosophy is grounded in a model of knowledge which takes “S knows that p” as its guiding paradigm. This paper will make the case that the “S knows that p” model of knowledge and, in particular, its prioritizing of meaning over making is fundamentally incorrect. To the contrary, I will argue that inquiry is a temporally emergent experience. By drawing on the act of artistic creation, I will show that doing and making are prior to, but not ontologically distinct from, meaning and knowing which emerge from action performed in a dynamic environment.
