Knowledge of our ignorance

Home » Knowledge of our ignorance

The more you learn, the more you realize you don’t know – or at least, cannot be certain.

Those that spout certainty cannot possibly hold enough knowledge to even pretend to be aware of their profound ignorance.

Karl Popper quote - Knowledge of ignorance

“The more we learn about the world, and the deeper our learning, the more conscious, specific, and articulate will be our knowledge of what we do not know, our knowledge of our ignorance. For this, indeed, is the main source of our ignorance – the fact that our knowledge can be only finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite”

— Karl Popper

Carpe diem my friends!
