In recent era, investigation on knowledge and its elements has become prominent in various subfields of philosophy and other streams like linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience and artificial intelligence. This focus is mainly on understanding the intentionality and its referentials to know how they enriched knowledge with their existence. Also based on the reflexive acts that arise from different objects in relation with contents of perceptual capacity. From which, I emphasise that, the contemporary debates between conceptual determination of content and thinking elements of knowledge is embodied by our perception but considerably less interest on truth and correctness of knowledge in view of its origins nature. Although, on the one hand both Kant and Husserl closely describes the knowledge sources of first-person experience on the transcendental notions (Allison, 2007), and on the other hand for Lomar (Rosa, 2010) the knowledge belongs to structure of self which is normative because all mental states are constitutes of normativity. It is significant to address how we understand the truth and correctness of knowledge sources by drawing a rigorous philosophical analysis of the cognitiveand phenomenological dimensions of human achievement. The investigation of this project has been carried within the phenomenological boundaries of self experiences from an observer and observed interactions view, by considering analysis on the nature of knowledge sources and the errors of epistemic-cognitive associations, such as, falaises, and ignorance in the perspective of awareness. The results of this investigation has been offered an advancement in describing certain facts on the nature of knowledge origins in addition to Husserl phenomenological ideas.
