…2/5(Post is Read)white, to decide for himself whether there is a God in heaven or not. To ask questions of theuniverse, and then learn to live with those questions, is the way he achieves his own identity. Intoday’s complex world, the more you learn, the more you feel the need to learn, or that you havenot learned enough. Knowledge is being constantly updated and this gives a feeling ofinadequacy that you are falling behind in today’s technology-driven world that is full of newdevelopments almost daily. A lot of information has unfortunately been suppressed and is nowbeing discovered through research. I also think what is meant by the paradox of education issimply that the more you know, the more you are apt to conceive of how limited knowledge is,and how much you in effect, don't know. But similarly, it may be that education is what allows youto realize your own self-imposed ignorance. When you know, you don't know, and when youdon't know, you know! In other words, it is stupidity that has confidence about knowledge. Realknowledge is about discovering ignorance! It is that word 'about' which most characterizes theparadox. By the way, the solution to this paradox is something like: having reason not tomeasure wisdom (since the paradox is something like measuring with ignorance).Joi GeorgeGeneral PsychologyThread:Unit 1, Discussion One: Nature v. NurturePost:RE: Unit 1, Discussion One: Nature v. NurtureAuthor:Posted Date:April 14, 2019 6:02 PMStatus:PublishedDavida,Thank you for your insightful post. I discussed continuity and discontinuity, however, after reading your post I want todelve into nature vs. nurture as well. During my time earning my bachelor’s degree, my professors would find a wayto bring the nature versus nurture question into debate. In doing this discussion, I found that I enjoy hearing whatothers' opinions are on the subject but that I had never formed an opinion of my own. Therefore, I decided to diveinto some research and really sit down to figure out what my opinion is on the theme of nature versus nurture. Nature VS. Nurture In order to really think about if I lean to one side or the other, I had to figure out the main substance of the theme.Chapter one of our textbook starts out with the question of which is more important in development: nature beingheredity or nurture being the environment (Broderick and Blewitt, 2014)? Already I believe that both are important indevelopment, you cannot have one without the other. Theses two factors are important in development becausewhile our genes may be inherited directly from our parents it could be said that we also inherit traits fromthe environment we are in. Our book also mentions that we may be swayed one way because of our culturalupbringing (Broderick and Blewitt, 2014). That statement took me by surprise at first but then it clicked for me thatthis does reign true. Some North Americans believe that children get their intelligence mostly from nature or heredity
