The Half Known World by Robert Boswell

Robert Boswell says:
"a percentage of researchers genuinely believe that
humans do not really learn anything ever; rather we
spend our lives discovering inborn capacities. ...
If we don't learn then we merely discover the range,
complexity and limits of our wiring....what we
seem to be doing as writers (he infers) is
listening to a story as it spins itself out..
perhaps when we talk about the pursuit of
truth, as writers often do, we're talking about
the ability of the writer to make contact with
that pure narrative wiring, to successfully
ride the native circuitry."
