Meditation is Fatal to Prejudice

The Buddha

“Prejudice” is an interesting word. In the modern United States, we tend to associate it with invidious discrimination, like racism, and thus deplore it. The German philosopher Hans Georg Gadamer, in his book, Truth and Method, uses “prejudice” to denote the various intellectual and emotional commitments we carry in our heads that help us make sense of the world.
