Knowledge is contextual . . . By “context” we mean the sum of cognitive
elements conditioning the acquisition, validity or application of any item of
human knowledge. Knowledge is an organization or integration of interconnected
elements, each relevant to the others . . . Knowledge is not a mosaic of
independent pieces each of which stands apart from the rest . . . .
In regard to any concept, idea, proposal, theory, or item of knowledge, never
forget or ignore the context on which it depends and which conditions its
validity and use.
