Common Sense..? c/o Shlain

The phrase "common sense" has several meanings. In one, it is the wisdom of all the senses, a holistic and simultaneous grasp of multiple converging determinants. In this meaning, common sense is intuitive and is often the opposite of logic. In another meaning, it is the wisdom of more than one person. It is the result of the give-and-take of face-to-face conversation with another, which allows one to "hear oneself think." In this second meaning, common sense is wisdom generated "in common."
