On Learning and Knowledge, by Jiddu Krishnamurti

On Learning and Knowledge

From Amazon: “In this collection of talks and notes from his diaries, Krishnamurti identifies and explores the distinction between learning and knowledge. Knowledge is past and accumulated knowledge, he says, tends to enslave you to accepted norms and ways of thinking. Learning is always in the future, it’s a continually moving process where the moment you learn something it becomes knowledge and knowledge, though necessary to live in this world, belongs to the past and is a burden. Learning is not listening with one’s knowledge. The point is driven home when he says that what most “learned people” really know is merely a collection of facts and since we are just following we are “second hand, worthless human beings”. His suggestion is to observe the whole movement of the learning process and arrive at ones own conclusion without rushing.”
