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.
