Free Writing #10

“Nearly 2,300 years before him, Plato proclaimed: ‘we have learned everything there is to learn…Seeking and learning is all remembrance'”(Turchi 224). I find this sentence to be quite interesting as Turhci shows the hubris that Plato and many other famous philosophers, scholars, and academics held to be true. But also Turchi wants us to understand that there is far more things to learn once someone claims that the height of knowledge is finished. We are build off the ideas of the past of those who thought everything was known to learn more if its ideas, concepts, places, stories, writing, etc. We must not become complacent that we know everything but to be open to discovery.
