important information

November 17, 2010

After reading a chapter from How to Read a Book, we were talking about the difference between reading for information and reading for understanding. We discussed whether the facts we quickly dig up on Wikipedia are really valuable to our lives.

Peter: I now know that Singapore is the largest port in the world. Isn’t that important?

Jess: I don’t know, but it surely has imports.
