Jones Gives Lecture at Central St. Martin’s

Jones Lecture

Gareth Jones (Professor, Experimental and Foundation Studies) gave a lecture at the University of the Arts London: Central Saint Martins on the 8th February 2016 entitled Gareth Jones: A Theory of Knowledge.

To quote Jones on his lecture:

“Let’s begin with aphorisms.

There are things we know. This is the conventional position for a teacher in the classroom. Doubt is absent.

There are things we don’t know. This is the conventional position for a student in the classroom. Doubt is present.

There are things we know we don’t know. This is an unconventional position for a teacher in the classroom. Doubt is present but not admitted.

There are things we don’t know we don’t know. This is a condition beyond ignorance and is subversive to the relationship between teacher and student.

There are things that are unknowable. This is a condition of absolute ignorance. It is never present in the classroom because it is destructive to the concept of education.”
