Poem from Old Lecture Notes

Old Notebook

There are two types of knowledge

One
Seeks to use techné
(or technology or magic)
To dominate our surroundings,
Including both nature and
Other human beings

The other
Seeks to use logos
(or reason or the principle of order)
To understand our surroundings
Including ourselves, nature, and others

The second of these might be called
Wisdom

The first might be called
Evil
