This paper discusses the methods and observations Freire and Percy use to explain that "true knowledge" is not measured by good academic standing, but rather by how an individual effectively relates what he learns to real life. The author states that just as the students adjust themselves to material facts and reality, instructors, in the same way, must adapt to the constant change that occurs to his/her student's learning.
From the Paper:"Walker Percy's thesis is that people will experience learning if they will not allow themselves to be influenced by preconceived notions and ideas about things that they want to discover and explore. He stated that people do not learn in the real sense because they lack the "surprise of discovery", an essential requirement for learning. An example supporting this statement can be found as an example in Percy's essay."
