|I was reading through a book called "Objective Feminism in Shakespeare" which is all about feminism and homoeroticism is Shakespeare's plays and I started to wonder about ones objectivity when reading.
Well this thread is about how YOU ready a book. When you read do you just ready the words or do you visualise? Do you ever stop and imagine why they are saying these things? Everyone interprets a book in their own way because of who they are; their life experiences shape who they are and what views they have.
So do you take in a book? Do you judge from your experiences? Do you take into account the author? Do you try and understand the climate and who it was written about? What about the social ecology of when it was written?
Since the bible and the church are obviously mistaken about where we came from, how can we trust them with where we're going?
