In many ways though I see the dominance of argument to be a central problem with the enlightenment theory that tried to quantify inequality based on sex and an artificial construct of race. It goes farther then the Enlightenment
The whole idea that man was given dominion over the natural world, which traces further back to Greek ideas of argument in logos, pathos, and ethos....The central dominance of "I" in the organizing force of knowledge.
This is what I want us to question with this prompt. Why isn't reflection considered the apex of thought? Why do butcher Spencer's concept of "fit" apply to Darwin and create worldviews around "survival of the fittest?" What if we took a expansive worldview of how the world works?
Why do we call it the Iron Age and Not the Flax Age?
Maybe these questions all draw from the poisoned wells that where Western knowledge gets drawn. Maybe if we allowed more voices from the beginning we wouldn't think the one who argues the best is the mostest right.
