Husserl on Growing in Knowledge

Edmund Husserl 1910s.jpgLearning is not the accumulation of scraps of knowledge. It is a growth, where every act of knowledge develops the learner, thus making him capable of constituting ever more and more complex objectivities—and the object growth in complexity parallels the subjective growth in capacity.

–Husserl as interpreted by Quentin Lauer, cited in Rollo May Love and Will, pg 223
