Books of Things We Do Not Know

The idea behind these books is a concept with a bad reputation – uncertainty. 

 

The Books of Things We Do Not Know are intended to remind us how much is unknown in the world.  By being aware of the things we don’t fully know (about the nature of the world, about each other, about what happened), the need for tolerance can become more evident. - tolerance of not just each other, but of our own limited capacity to be certain of what we might understand and declare as true.   

Acknowledged uncertainty can be a powerfully positive force to expand our capacities for best actions, course corrections, and reconsideration.
