Christian theismHuman beings can know both the world around them and God himself because God has built into them the capacity to do so and because he takes and active role in communicating with them.

Theistic ExistentialismHuman beings can know both the world around them and God himself because god has built into them the capacity to do so and because he takes and active role in communicating with them. Knowledge is subjectivity; the whole truth is often paradoxical.
Eastern Pantheistic MonismTo realize one's oneness with the cosmos is to pass beyond knowledge. The principal of non-contradiction does not apply where ultimate reality is concerned.
New AgeThe core experience of the New Age is cosmic consciousness, in which ordinary categories of space, time, and morality tend to disappear.
