I need help understanding this article from wes jackson "toward an ignorance based worldview". I understand he does not speak of knowledge as in getting an education of a university, but i cannot understand his point. could anyone please help me.

    His point is that mankind is fundamentally ignorant. There's much that we as individuals and as a society do not know. We should recognize our ignorance. He supports this thesis with several examples.

    we should recognize it and do what with it? continue to educate ourselves or just stop because its too much for us to know. also, i understood him being very negative towards knowledge in general and it came accross to me as if he's saying we shouldnt have meddled with it in the first place considering all our experiments are huritng our environment.

    I think he's saying that we should always be skeptical and realize we are ignorant.
