“TRY IT – YOU’LL LIKE IT”
Advice about WHAT to think is certain to be met with argument. If a conclusion is drawn it will be because the subject has shifted from WHAT to HOW.
Advice about HOW to think increases the pool of knowledge; it generates questions rather than arguments, discoveries rather than frantic searches for proof.
Those who focus on WHAT to think often rely heavily on the quotes and references of dead scholars who are no longer able to defend their words; words which are often taken out of context.
A book I own has a chapter entitled HOW IT WORKS.
It is not about HOW anything works NOR is it about WHAT to think ; the reader is encouraged only to adopt the biases of the author however allusive their attraction. “TRY IT – YOU’LL LIKE IT” the text implies. (Now what did I do with the Alka Seltzer?)
