Reflection for the Week - March 30

I’d wager we often tend 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 to have knowledge is to ‘be known.’ Being known carries significant influence in knowing and therefore without this ‘knowness’ our knowledge will surely be greatly impoverished. The more one attempts to be a single focus knower, the further one is away from the actuality of knowledge.
