the first European festival on creativity

2013 Program

EVENT #19

Gabriella Caramore

Imperfect knowledge

Wonder and desire, feverish activity of the mind, hunger for experience, acceleration toward the unknown: such are the dynamics the open the child's mind to the world. But just because of that, and because it is daring, knowledge in children is always imperfect. It never reaches a stage of fulfillment and accomplishment, it proceeds by experiment and error, by folly and discovery, by inaccuracy and risk. Yet this is just the kind of imperfect knowledge that all great religious and philosophical traditions have identified as the only true one. From Greek thought, according to which real knowledge is not knowing, to th Bible, for which “the wisdom of the world is foolish”, to the Oriental tradition, where “the fullness of virtue is being like a child” (duration: approx. 120’).
