I'm enjoying the book "Being Wrong" by Kathryn Schulz – a wide-ranging exploration of how we think about and interpret the world around us. Sprinkled liberally throughout are excerpts from the disciplines of science, philosophy, epistemology…etc. that she uses to deftly compare and contrast differing viewpoints.
Here's one I found especially interesting, and in keeping with one of the themes of this blog, namely: can a visual language, e.g., photography be adequately described or translated into written or spoken form?
"The Enlightenment philosopher John Locke thought that error seeped into our lives from the gap between the artificiality of words and the reality of the things they name – from the distance between an indescribable essence and the nearest sayable thing."
