TRUTH? PERHAPS.

Does it matter, the ideas we study?

Does it matter, if we begin with an opinion?

If we endeavor to understand any idea or set of ideas
with the assumption that this set of ideas is Truth and
the purpose of studying those ideas is to find a way to
achieve cognitive consonance between the beliefs of the
original thinker and the students, can learning actually occur?

Befuddling?

Perhaps.

To study requires a promise

To cherish objectivity.

To learn requires a premise

That is the priority.

But….

Perhaps there is no truth?

Are we using the right tools?

Oh, for an opinion.

So many rules.

Are we fools?


Perhaps.
