The blog’s title, Svoir, is a play on the infinitive of two French words:
- Savoir “to know;” and
- Voir “to see.”
Grappling with this juxtaposition between our perceptions and our knowledge—what we have been trained to believe and what we see right in front of us– is the essence of seeking understanding. It is in this space of earnest intellectual inquiry and emotional openness that insights are gained. It is that space which this blog seeks to hold and bring to the fore.
