Footnote

"The mark of the new evolution which sweeps us along is that unlearning and learning anew have already become as important to survival as learning used to be. What people know is far less important than their capacity for modifying or discarding what they think they know."

(John E. Pfeiffer, The Emergence of Humankind, 4th ed. NY: Harper and Row, 1985, p. 358.)
