Hello Every one I'm really determined to understand what is human knowledge and its main fields. For me knowledge is the must important concern for humanity. I read some books and the one who really got my attention is "General theory of Knowldge" of Moritz Schlick.

I'm asking myself which humans/philosophers are considered to be the references on human knowledge works ( attempt of definition and classification by importance of its different branchs ). Wikipedia has a classification of academic disciplines and fields. Can we say that it is a good human knowledge subdivision?

And finally because there is too much ( humanities, formal science, applied science, natural science ) to discover, rediscover and may be understand, what is the most important things to know?

Thanks for guiding me
