(A) The reading process involves two main tasks which are complementary: visual analysis of print and understanding text. The two activities are interdependent. “Reading” words without understanding is “a string of meaningless noise”. Understanding a text without having processed it is impossible, “an empty dream—a figment of the imagination. Neither is reading: reading is both.” ‘
(B) The disciplines encompass far more than the personal knowings of any individual scholar. They are the established knowledge of the world at a given time, but inquiry goes on more rapidly now than ever before. New concepts overthrow old ones, and new investigations begin. Only a few years ago, the earth was conceived of as a somewhat flattened sphere. Now it is conceived of as pear shaped. The satellites were able to gather vast amounts of data quickly, and computers were able to process some of the new information within hours.
