Now here’s something to sink the teeth into—a sort of challenge—can we do better?
I guess my reaction to this post is a sort of microcosm of my reaction to most of the content of this blog—I think that our biases are -necessary-, in fact, I think they are the way that we think. They are easily exposed and routed out in our interactions with very basic things, but can you tell me how to get rid of my biases in thinking about Category Theory? How do I get rid of my biases when reading the works of Foucault?
Our biases are a consequence of our computational contexts.
We cannot get outside of our computational contexts.
Thus, I am beginning to think that the “right work” of the intellectual is to -expose- and -inspire- rather than to -criticize- and -condemn-.
This post speaks to that.
We cannot get out of our computational contexts, but let’s evolve them together so that we have the foundation required to inspire, yo!
Thanks for this post—it’s certainly inspired a lot of thought in me.
