Objects of Inquiry and Curiosity – Sergei Sokolovskiy

Anthropology and science is full of opinions. Science essentially deals with established opinions about objects. I think the concept of ‘doubt’ produces an entirely different set of questions compared to curiosity. If you throw a ball into a lion cage, they will be curious about it. They will try to find out what it is, whether it is food, whether it can hurt them. That would be curiosity. If you have the established opinions of people, and you doubt it, and you are skeptical about it, then you start to question it, and look deeper into it.
