The author asks:

“Who is the most intelligent person you know?”

 History is replete with men and women who we have tokenized as icons of intellect and reason, and for whom we sculpted prizes and awards to be placed within their hands as they are idolized before all, yet we have failed to answer the fundamental question, “what is intelligence and what is the role of the intellect?”

 It was Aristotle who felt that virtue could be found by understanding the correct function of a thing. An eye was deemed to be useful in so much as it could see

. Likewise, the intellect will be deemed praiseworthy only by the fulfillment of its function. Therefore, we must define the role and function of the intellect before answering my initial question.

  It is often the answers to life’s simplest questions that are the most indicative of who we are, what we value, and how we understand the world around us.

We are, therefore, obliged to question our assumptions, as they form the foundations of our worldview, even if only for the sole purpose of attempting to remain true to who we are or want to be.
