Category:Ignorance and Education
With a concept of ignorance, people grasp a radical condition that inheres in all life, especially human life, pulling it into their field of awareness. To live is to be locked in a present, unable to know, to anticipate the future bearing down upon the living instant. Our radical, vital ignorance is this inability to have fore knowledge. Birth throws each person into a world of churning circumstance, naked, inchoate, without skill or culture, a vector of innumerable potentialities, none of which are certainties. People live facing the future, the indeterminate with respect to which they have many possibilities and no dependable knowledge. And even though in the course of life, they acquire all manner of skills, beliefs, opinions, convictions, ideas, and so much more, they still act and suffer in ignorance, never sure how their acquirements will serve them in the moment of actuality, with what results in the flux of vital situations that may unfold as the lot with which life challenges each to deal.
Ignorance takes many forms, and all these stand to education as the many kinds of disease stand to medicine.
