Maybe our job is not to pass on truths but to develop seekers of truth

There are many times I find myself feeling like an impostor when I claim to my students or even my peers that I know about something. After all, the facts I may be teaching now may become obsolete the moment my students graduate or my peers do their own research.

But maybe the important thing is not to pass on truths or facts, but rather, to cultivate authentic seekers of truth. Although I agree that there is an objective truth (and I do not agree with “perception is reality, the truth is not”), I also agree that we can never fully know the entirety of an objective truth. But it does not mean we stop trying.

How can we develop citizens and future business leaders that is motivated less by answering questions and more by asking insightful questions and courageously iterating implementations?

Confirming preferred narratives may feel convenient, but isn’t the process of finding more about the truth more engaging and exhilarating?
