✏The Power of Ignorance Book Summary : According to Webster, power is “to be able, to have the ability to act, to have the capacity to influence, and to have the authority to control others.” Every day of the week our TVs and newspapers go nonstop telling us about the power of the press, black power, white power, and the power of the spoken word. This book is about another overwhelming power that can and sometimes does change the world we humans live in. On the pages of this book, the author, David Swendsen, who has spent his whole life protecting our natural resources, believes that the biggest enemy he and our fading resources face is the power of ignorance. Early in this book, former state and federal officer and later university instructor, Swendsen, describes just how some of our former world leaders previously made use of the power of ignorance to accumulate a great deal of power. Swendsen states, “Having acquired and confronted my share of ignorance in my lifetime, I feel I am qualified to attempt to point out how IGNORANCE has affected we human’s existence here on this changing planet.” The book discusses lies and liars and includes quotes that were made by former leaders. In the book, Winston Churchill’s quote is, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to put its pants on.” Being creatures of habit makes us humans vulnerable to ignorance. “Because we have always done it that way,” we don’t want to change. The book defines two kinds of ignorance and explains how many leaders use ignorance to gain the power they need to control people. Many people call this salesmanship. It appears that all leaders mostly use sales talk to lead regardless of how they sell their programs. Not all leaders use ignorance as their method of gaining a following. Some leaders promise jobs, and some promise but don’t follow through. Some vocally downgrade their rivals. Some use religion. Some use their salesmanship toward gathering male or female followers. Some promise financial gain. George Bush used the false assumption that Iraq had nuclear weapons to justify the disastrous decisions to go to war. Those in Congress who continually disclaim the effects of climate change and those leaders, including President Donald Trump, who have claimed climate change a hoax and that human beings are not involved in our recent more violent and more frequent storms, tornadoes, floods, and overwhelming weather-related disasters, are doing so to gain money and power. In fact, their actions or nonactions are putting our planet earth in jeopardy of becoming unlivable for our children’s children. Most human beings are born with a wonderful gift of human intelligence. This helps develop a lifelong determination to succeed in our daily affairs, such as to preserve our underlying health and to maintain our needed self-esteem. We, because of this intelligence gift, can deal with most difficult situations. But if we put our faith in the hands of any leader or proposed leader and that leader lies to us or abandons us, depression can be the result. We now may be overpowered by what I call the ignorance trap. President Trump’s overwhelming raid on environment safety measures, attitude toward sensible gun regulations, immigration, his wall, and relaxing the protection of federal lands and waters jeopardize the lives of all humans. The scientist suggests A-F needed changes to override the power of ignorance. End if the book describes firsthand experiences with “power of ignorance” leaders . . .

✏The Virtues of Ignorance Book Summary : Human dependence on technology has increased exponentially over the past several centuries, and so too has the notion that we can fix environmental problems with scientific applications. The Virtues of Ignorance: Complexity, Sustainability, and the Limits of Knowledge proposes an alternative to this hubristic, shortsighted, and dangerous worldview. The contributors argue that uncritical faith in scientific knowledge has created many of the problems now threatening the planet and that our wholesale reliance on scientific progress is both untenable and myopic. Bill Vitek, Wes Jackson, and a diverse group of thinkers, including Wendell Berry, Anna Peterson, and Robert Root-Bernstein, offer profound arguments for the advantages of an ignorance-based worldview. Their essays explore this philosophy from numerous perspectives, including its origins, its essence, and how its implementation can preserve vital natural resources for posterity. All conclude that we must simply accept the proposition that our ignorance far exceeds our knowledge and always will. Rejecting the belief that science and technology are benignly at the service of society, the authors argue that recognizing ignorance might be the only path to reliable knowledge. They also uncover an interesting paradox: knowledge and insight accumulate fastest in the minds of those who hold an ignorance-based worldview, for by examining the alternatives to a technology-based culture, they expand their imaginations. Demonstrating that knowledge-based worldviews are more dangerous than useful, The Virtues of Ignorance looks closely at the relationship between the land and the future generations who will depend on it. The authors argue that we can never improve upon nature but that we can, by putting this new perspective to work in our professional and personal lives, live sustainably on Earth.

✏Race and Epistemologies of Ignorance Book Summary : Offering a wide variety of philosophical approaches to the neglected philosophical problem of ignorance, this groundbreaking collection builds on Charles Mills's claim that racism involves an inverted epistemology, an epistemology of ignorance. Contributors, explore how different forms of ignorance linked to race are produced and sustained and what role they play in promoting racism and white privilege. They argue that the ignorance that underpins racism is not a simple gap in knowledge, the accidental result of an epistemological oversight. In the case of racial oppression, ignorance often is actively produced for purposes of domination and exploitation. But as these essays demonstrate, ignorance is not simply a tool of oppression wielded by the powerful. It can also be a strategy for survival, an important tool for people of color to wield against white privilege and white supremacy. The book concludes that understanding ignorance and the politics of such ignorance should be a key element of epistemological and social/political analyses, for it has the potential to reveal the role of power in the construction of what is known and provide a lens for the political values at work in knowledge practices.

✏The Way of Ignorance Book Summary : A soulful, searching collection of essays that tackle the complexities of contemporary america from “the prophet of rural America” (New York Times). From the war in Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to the political sniping engendered by Supreme Court nominations—contemporary American society is characterized by divisive anger, profound loss, and danger. Wendell Berry, “the prophet of rural America” (New York Times) and one of the country’s foremost cultural critics, responds with hope and intelligence in a series of essays that tackle the major questions of the day. Whose freedom are we considering when we speak of the free market or free enterprise? What is really involved in our national security? What is the price of ownership without affection? Berry answers in prose that shuns abstraction for clarity, coherence, and passion, giving us essays that may be the finest of his long career. “Everything in the book illumines.” —Booklist “[Berry’s] poems, novels and essays . . . are probably the most sustained contemporary articulation of America’s agrarian, Jeffersonian ideal.” —Publishers Weekly “Wendell Berry is one of those rare individuals who speaks to us always of responsibility, of the individual cultivation of an active and aware participation in the arts of life.” —The Bloomsbury Review

✏Behind a Veil of Ignorance Book Summary : This volume is a very interesting research project that includes the most careful work on constitutional power and limits to authority of which I am aware. In general, the contributors find that constitutional negotiations normally took place in settings where uncertainty was considerable. They also find that the more detailed the characterization of power relationships, the more liberal and durable the democracy tends to be. Roger D. Congleton This book addresses the issue of the impact of uncertainty in constitutional design. To what extent do constitution drafters and adopters make their decisions behind a veil of ignorance? More fundamentally, can we infer from constitutional texts the degree of uncertainty faced by constitution drafters and adopters? After an introduction (chapter 1), the book proceeds in two parts. The first part (chapters 2 to 4) introduces to the intellectual filiation of the project and to its theoretical and methodological foundations. The second part (chapters 5 to 13) presents nine case studies built on the same structure: historical account of the making of the Constitution, results of the content analysis of the constitutional text, and discussion of specific issues raised in the analysis. Chapter 14 concludes.

✏Ignorance Power and Harm Book Summary : This book discusses the concept of 'agnosis' and its significance for criminology through a series of case studies, contributing to the expansion of the criminological imagination. Agnotology – the study of the cultural production of ignorance, has primarily been proposed as an analytical tool in the fields of science and medicine. However, this book argues that it has significant resonance for criminology and the social sciences given that ignorance is a crucial means through which public acceptance of serious and sometimes mass harms is achieved. The editors argue that this phenomenon requires a systematic inquiry into ignorance as an area of criminological study in its own right. Through case studies on topics such as migrant detention, historical institutionalised child abuse, imprisonment, environmental harm and financial collapse, this book examines the construction of ignorance, and the power dynamics that facilitate and shape that construction in a range of different contexts. Furthermore, this book addresses the relationship between ignorance and the achievement of ‘manufactured consent’ to political and cultural hegemony, acquiescence in its harmful consequences and the deflection of responsibility for them.
