5 Ways of Not Knowing

Five ways of not knowing

  • Innocently not knowing. Simply being unaware of the existence of or need for particular knowledge.
  • Receptively not knowing. Open to learning what you know you don’t know.
  • Willfully not knowing. Ignoring, repressing, or generally refusing to acknowledge.
  • Mistakenly not knowing. Thinking you know when you don’t.
  • Hubristically not knowing. Thinking something is knowable in a final sense when it isn’t.
