    Would you then say that Knowledge comes from Ignorance? (Report) Reply

    We can view Knowledge and Ignorance either as independent categories, or as inter-related entities.Socrates claimed that learning new things from the unknown is quite impossible. He believed that all we know is innate, a priori knowledge, transferred from past lives.
