Thursday Thoughts - October 11

In the search for personal knowledge it is possible to put far too much weight on knowing and being a knower. This over-emphasis is a major plague, and expresses itself in several ways including: reductionism, hiddenness, and falsification. Other perspectives are necessary. My proposal, for one of these, is that increasing in knowledge is to ‘be known.’ Being known carries significant power for knowing and therefore without this ‘knowness’ our knowledge will surely be greatly impoverished. The more one attempts to be a knower with a single focus trajectory of knowing, the further one is away from the validity of knowledge.
