Understanding – Wikipedia

Understanding is often, though not always, related to learning concepts, and sometimes also the theory or theories associated with those concepts. However, a person may have a good ability to predict the behaviour of an object, animal or system – and therefore may, in some sense, understand it – without necessarily being familiar with the concepts or theories associated with that object, animal or system in their culture.

Someone who has a more sophisticated understanding, more predictively accurate understanding, and/or an understanding that allows them to make explanations that others commonly judge to be better, of something, is said to understand that thing “deeply”.

Conversely, someone who has a more limited understanding of a thing is said to have a “shallow” understanding. However, the depth of understanding required to usefully participate in an occupation or activity may vary greatly.
