unlearn; v. [the act of unlearning; verbal n, to unlearn]

1. the act of releasing old knowledge.

2. to see the world not as one would like to see it, but as it really is.

3. to be un-uninformed.

4. to acquire wisdom either by replacing old information which has been supplanted by new knowledge or, alternatively, by relinquishing known falsehoods.

Unlearning is a critical skill, especially in today’s world of rapid and accelerating change. To understand why, consider this: scientific and technical knowledge is now doubling every seven years.
