… is to begin your journey of learning.
Is this not typical of the learning process? To realize that one has been naïve and therefore perhaps not utterly wrong, but too hopeful or certainly over confident.
I’ve just finished reading the “Logic: Very Short Introduction” by Graham Priest (Oxford University Press), and man oh man have I got much to learn! It’s not two or three introductory books on Formal Logic that’ll hack it. No Sir! Logic is a vast field of study. Priest did warn that he aimed for breadth, not depth. He certainly succeeded. I’d been dealing with such a narrow, and obsolete form of Logic until his book. But Modern Logic has made such huge advances that the landscape has gone from a very grainy black and white picture to a full HD 1080p billion-colour image.
Not only that, but as I read through the book, I kept noticing how reckless I’ve been in my writing and reasoning. Sure, I might be ‘on to something’, but I didn’t just run with it, I sprinted.
Well… much work lies ahead. See ya ’round!
