There is a big literature in cultural studies about whether we consume cultural objects passively (accepting things without thinking) or actively (critically assessing before accepting, or maintaining a critical distance from the artefact). This is an interesting cognitive question. Perhaps some of the most critical people must begin as dogmatists to learn (I accept I am in this camp), and the most crticial are the most learning-ambivalent. How far do we resist objects as sources of information?
Is this a question of psychology, or cultural politics?
Furthermore; when we women of letters learn, how far do we be dogmatic; do we doubt what we have read, even if we don’t accept what is said?
Adults, and children are dogmatic if they consider their source reliable; my idiot parents accept popular science.
