“The interaction of individuals possessing different knowledge and different views, is what constitutes the life of thought. The growth of reason is a social process based on the existence of such differences. It is the essence that its results cannot be predicted, that we cannot know which views will assist this growth and will not – in short, that this growth cannot be governed by any views which we now possess without at the same time limiting it to “plan” or “organize” the growth of mind or for that matter progress, in general is a contradiction of terms.”

You must just stop, read it once or twice, and find what it means to you. Because I am sure that you have seen where this could be applied.
