F/Actual knowing : putting facts and values in place
MetadataShow full item record
Knowing needs to be actualized, an act of ours, yet also a discovery of what is actually, factually there. Embodied, emplaced persons, shaped by our concepts and percepts, perhaps all our knowledge wears a human face. But we humans have powers of dis-placement too, sometimes taking up the situations of others than humans. Language is for conversing with each other; language is for encountering the world we inhabit. We sometimes find placed there before us what we variously value on Earth. The human genius can transcend location.
