“…the origin of thinking is some perplexity, confusion, or doubt.”

 - Dewey, John "What is thought?" Chapter 1 in How we think. Lexington, Mass: D.C. Heath, (1910): 1-13. https://www.brocku.ca/MeadProject/Dewey/Dewey_1910a/Dewey_1910_a.html


A problem is any question or matter involving doubt, uncertainty, or difficulty. To explore the problem space begins with accepting that one’s vision is at least partly obscured by the fog of perplexity. The idea is to keep moving, following the light, while mists clear and the landscape reveals itself.
