The Precision in Imprecision

Absolute knowledge and precision are seen as key values in our society. Not knowing something with certainty is seen as a flaw. The intolerance for multiple forms of truth, uncertainty, and ambiguity leaves no room for negotiationmand is a method of exclusion. This linear way of thinking and the human urge to precisely demarcate and classify all aspects of life dismiss an often more complex reality. These set lines through which exact division is sought between here and there, black and white, gender, or species are increasingly blurring and are no longer effective in this ever more diverse time, if they ever were.

By questioning the certainty of the one-dimensional linear representation for boundaries, this text aims to recognize the value of ambiguity and argues that, by letting go of the wish for precision, the resulting imprecision can lead to a more accurate view of borders as well as the world in general and can promote open dialogue. Imprecision would then lead to precision, so accuracy— like life — is blurry and far from being certain in general, even though we do not want to acknowledge it. This was my master thesis.
