I trust people who respect my intelligence and encourage me to use my own brain, they can actually teach something

I don’t trust those who constantly claim they have some truth to tell and feel superior, their soul is dry

It’s easier to retain the things that you figured out yourself. This is very effective teaching indeed. At the same time, there are a small number of things that are too risky to experiment on. Things that are lethal. Things that causes permanent damage. And things that causes irreversible changes. Some truths are required to mitigate poorly placed curiosities.

Yeah of course, there can’t be any form of society without an history and a gathered knowledge. But I still think people who *claim* they know the truth are not trustworthy. Even scientists nowadays accept that the knowledge they produce is not “the truth”, it’s just an approssimation constantly open to changes and new interpretations

Truth are basically verified logic statements, if-, then- statements. Example: If you pick up a pen and let it go, then it will fall. To ensure the accuracy of the logic statements, we need to add constraints. An example for the previous statement is the location has to be a place where gravity is present, another constraint would be the location is not submerged in water, etc. I think truth has a place in our daily lives. I don’t think its place is to make one feel superior. The truth is a double edged blade. When you use it to measure someone else, you will be measured with the same standard.

Logically only tautologies are true, they add nothing to knowledge. Your statement could not be scientifically considered true (even in the optimal conditions), but only highly probable. Probability does have a place in our daily lives, we assume even more questionable stuff, like the fact the we’re going to be alive tomorrow

That’s a valid point. It would be a very inefficient way to communicate when you have to write an entire book about the contraints you are using to support your statement. It would not be logical to take an observation from one scenario and make a generalization for every other scenario for that very reason. The world is very dynamic. It would be ignorant to make lab environment assumptions when dealing with any situation.

The latter sentence may be a book material, in a dialogue, perhaps. Dry souls? Heraclitus?

How is someone telling you to always find your own truth teach you something? The entire point is that they won't and what makes them more trustworthy? What makes someone confident in their own knowledge and powers of observation and deduction less trustworthy and what does it even mean to say that their soul is dry? If this my characterization of them isn't what you had in mind, then maybe your characterization was too vague, just pre-empting the potential communication issue with this last one.

It’s called maieutics and it’s today considered by pedagogists the best way to tech things to children. You don’t just throw facts into their minds, you encourage them to use their rationality to develop their thoughts and personality (and this is an enrichment). The “truth” is never something objective, so if someone claims they know “the truth” and want you to just accept whatever they say, they just have an imperative attitude, that’s why I don’t trust them. Example? The church. Their soul is dry because they don’t enrich you like they claim to do, they drain you

Most contemporary philosophers argue that, after Ancient Greeks, there was nothing to discover in philosophy. If she had any knowledge of philosophy, which is highly probable, she couldn't have skipped Greeks - and Heraclitus.
