“What we have in our heads is a theory of what the world is like, a theory that is the basis of all our perceptions and understanding of the world, the root of all learning, the source of all hopes and fears, motives and expectations, reasoning and creativity–if we can make sense of the world at all it is by interpreting our interactions with the world in the light of our theory. The theory is our shield against bewilderment.”

Understanding Reading by Frank Smith, p. 57
