Insight: Obscured By Intellect?
Krishnamurti’s radical observation about the movement of learning has not received the importance that it deserves.
He observes that accumulation of knowledge – whether through study first followed by experience or experience first followed by study is not learning. Knowledge is only the expression of learning, not learning itself.
The core of learning is insight, perception, discovery. Insight is a quality of Life itself.
Does intellect obscure insight just as clouds obscure the sun? Can insight have primary importance at the first step and in every step thereafter? What facilitates insight and how is it obscured? Can education be based upon such an approach?
These questions are the essence of investigation of this book.
