Various Ways in Perceiving Discovery

One significant question regarding discovery appear in my head; what has shaped my assumptions and beliefs about discovery? First of all, assumption refers to preconceived ideas and ways of thinking. Each individual can uncover assumptions by considering the cultural and personal biases that every composer brings to the act of representation, and by questioning your own assumptions. My assumptions about discovery has shaped by the idea given my most people in my high school as well as from the prescriptions rubric for area of study discovery, given by my English teacher. This rubric explain in depth about the concept of discovery, it shaped my understanding about discovery.

My ideas about discovery has been reinforced by this area of study due to the lack understanding about discovery of mine. I have been given several handouts about discoveries, the teacher even showed the entire class several video clips regarding discovery with unique content so that the students can memorize it easily. One of the clips being showed called “Symphony of Science: The Poetry of Reality”. It consist several scientist who has done discoveries in their life and their discoveries turns out to be a life changer in the life of many people as well as increasing the knowledge of science. This can be a proof that discoveries indeed a fresh and intensely meaningful, confronting, and provocative.

It is important to understand one’s assumption about discovery since the ramification of particular discoveries can may differ for individuals and their worlds. An individual’s discoveries and their process of discovering can vary according to personal cultural, historical and social context and values. The impact of there discoveries can be far-reaching and transformative for the individual and the broader environment, that’s why it is important to understand one’s assumption about discovery. It can lead us into a better future.Placeholder Image


Assumption about Discovery

Discovery is the action or process of discovering or being discovered. It encompass the experience of discovering something for the first time or rediscovering something that has been lost, forgotten or concealed. It can be sudden and unexpected or even emerge from a process of deliberate and careful planning evoked by curiosity or wonder. It offer new understandings and renewed perceptions of ourselves and others. An individual’s discoveries can vary according to personal, cultural, and social context and values. The impact can be far-reaching and transformative for the individual and for broader society.

I have positive sense about discoveries, since it can be fresh and intensely meaningful in ways that may be emotional, creative, intellectual, physical, and spiritual, confronting, and provocative. Discoveries can lead us to new worlds and values, stimulate new ideas, and enable us to speculate about the future probabilities.

As I begin this area of study, I have no idea about what it is going to be and I was curious about what will be discussed further more by both the teachers and the students. But, once I got the rubric from one of my teacher, Mr. Joshua, I started to understand and have specific point of view regarding the concept of Discovery. I was excited in figuring out that discovery and the process of discovering can vary between each individuals. It is important for individuals and society because by exploring the concept of discovering, we can understand how text have the potential to affirm or challenge individuals.
