Educational Hubris.

The sad result of being able to read
is that you almost certainly come to believe
that the world is knowable,
and truth definable, describable.

I cannot disagree that education brings hubris....and yet, for those of us who pay close attention during "education" it can bring an "impasse" and an "unknowing"....

It seems to me that this hubris (that the world is knowable and truth definable), is not due mostly to "education" or "reading" ー but the result of a bias that the subject has direct contact with the object. This bias requires no education, or even reading and seem built directly into the human being
