Talk:Joy in discovery

Jump to: navigation, search

Discovery isn't all about knowing stuff about the world out there. A lot is in obtaining conceptual tools to look at the world. The descriptions of these tools need to get into one's head to get one started, but not necessarily the info about the world that is enabled by these tools. Hence "evidential entanglement" is a wrong association (btw, a better link for that phrase, if it was to put in the article in the first place, is Beliefs require observations). --Vladimir Nesov 12:27, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
