Chapter 7 Self-Application over lecture

This lecture is taken from a chapter of a book I wrote. In “Edges and Knowns”, you are

presented with a “deviant” culture that you probably know little about. We blind people are

frequently amazed at how little the average person understands about blindness, thus we take

advantage of any opportunities to present some information about it.

Write a reaction to what you read, taking any stance you wish. It should explain some of our apparent deviance. Please

refer to the lecture “EDGES AND KNOWNS”
