Melius ex errore

[From: Bruce Nevin (Thu 921217 12:25:14)]

For when PCT becomes part of the academic establishment, here is
a nifty motto, perhaps to be graven over the gothic entrace to PCTU,
lifted (I am told) from the medieval schoolmen:

        Melius invenitur veritas ex errore quam ex ignorantia

"It is easier to arrive at truth from error than from ignorance."

The communication quandary is how to get an audience from the
confort of vested ignorance (ignoring) to the productive
discomfort of error.
