The Nature of Reality

“In the popular imagination, knowing si see nas the act of a solitary individual, a knower who uses sense and intellect to apprehend and interpret objects of knowledge ‘out there.’ Not only does this knower operate apart from other knowers, he or she is also set apart from the known object in order to guarantee that our knowledge will be ‘objective’ and pure. The popular image of howe know reality is as non- or anti-communal as is the popular image of the nature of reality itself.”
