從進化的角度來看,幼年就是一段專門為了學習而存在的時期。在成人的庇護下,幼兒唯一的任務就是學習,他們無需操心是否要真的做出點成就來。而成人更注重的則是利用現有知識,快速有效地行動。抑制性化學物質對這一趨勢可能是有利的。自然之道的運行自有其信條:“沒壞就不用修。”既然如此,那麼大腦工作得順順當當,自然也就沒必要去改變它。 -

这里有一个原则同学们要记住:不重要的学术作品大可不读,但重要的要反复重读,读多遍。不要相信重要作品的简化阐释,因为作者究竟怎样想我们不可能从简化的阐释中学到。 -

Rarely will I get through every section of every book.  The idea is to create a kind of dialogue among the authors, identifying points of overlap and difference.  Very often, the ideas from one book will trigger ideas that have you scouring the other books for elaboration.  The mixture of ideas from several books will lead to a thought that is not contained in any of the books.  When you read in parallel, it's like being in the room while the authors are conversing.  The intersecting of ideas almost always stimulates fresh ways of thinking about (and applying) the topic at hand. -[..]ding-in-parallel-becoming-better-at.html
