I agree about inductive and deductive thinking. I am also an inductive thinker, so as I say in one of my videos, my generalizations have a couple of decades of obsessive thought behind them. I’m not too impressed by people who drop by to assert that we can’t really know what we claim to know, or that it is just a “subjective” truth and therefore meaningless. As I say, we all have the capacity to be able to learn from our experiences. Babies necessarily have to learn that fire burns, that one falls from heights and those essential basics, but we should never really stop learning from our environment. Those who stop are lazy, in my view. They want to defer to authorities in the guise of science or their priest or — in rare cases — an academic authority. Or, more commonly, a politician. They are raving idiots and often self-assured.
