How Culture Teaches

Propositions are critically important, but not all knowledge is propositional.

Unlike science, culture is not a repository of factual information or theoretical truth, nor is it a kind of training in skills, whether rhetorical or practical. Yet it is a source of knowledge: emotional knowledge, concerning what to do and what to feel. … Every culture therefore has its roots in religion, and from this root the sap of moral knowledge spreads through all the branches of speculation and art.
