The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. ~ Alvin Toffler
According to a English dictionary (google dictionary), unlearn is defined as "discard (something learned, esp. a bad habit or false or outdated information) from one's memory." Or unlearn is defined as "to forget and stop doing (something, such as a habit) in a deliberate way because it is bad or incorrect (Merriam-Webster)".
My question about learning and unlearning is "When we have to learn and unlearn?"
And my simple answer is "Whenever we learn, we have to unlearn." Because learning and unlearning is a coin (human cognition, affection, and behavior)'s double sides.
