“Indeed, the practice of curiosity can differ across individuals, may change with age and cognitive development, and is likely impacted by stress and socioeconomic status, as well as prior experience. Intuitively, the practice of curiosity could be impatient or enduring. It could involve seeking completely unknown information or vaguely familiar information. It could involve gathering the new information and keeping it logged separately like bits of trivia, or it could involve determining the links between bits of information, fitting them into one’s existing body of knowledge. While these manners of curiosity are intuitive, it remains difficult to precisely define them, categorize them into classes, write down mathematical formulations for their nature, and form generative models for their processes. In other words, we lack a science of the practice of curiosity. (new par) In this chapter we develop the conceptual foundations for such a science.” (Danielle S. Bassett, “A Network Science of the Practice of Curiosity” in Curiosity Studies: A New Ecology of Knowledge, Perry Zurn and Arjun Shankar, Ed., University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis, 2020, p. 58.)
