Haley Scholars Fall 2013 Reading Groups
"Wrongness knows no limits...there is no form of knowledge, however central or unassailable it may seem, that cannot, under certain circumstances, fail us" (69). --Kathryn Schulz
In chapter 4 "Our Minds," in her book Being Wrong, Kathryn Schulz discusses how seemingly accurate memories of events end up being inaccurate. Over time, our memories can become "riddled with errors" yet continue "to feel so right" (73). She later points out that "we are bad knowing we don't know," and most of us "are noticeably better at generating theories than registering our own ignorance" (82-83).
After reading Schulz's chapter, what's one specific way you now view the accuracy or inaccuracy of your memory? Or, how did the chapter influence your view concerning the limits of your knowledge?
