Philosophy Wire: Growing up. Breaking the world into pieces. [Damn these details]


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2017-03-29]: The older we get, the more difficult it becomes to put the world around us in order. Yet, our brain develops strategies to slow down the effects of aging. To put it simply: they pay more attention to the details and look more closely than younger people. [1] When we are young we cannot easily find similarities between seemingly different objects. When we are young we cannot yet distinguish the world into pieces. While growing up we learn to see the details. While growing up everything seems different. The greatest detail which eludes us as adults is that there are always more details… Think as a child again and you will see the world. As a whole.
