As with many of the AP Euro concepts that I’ve studied, Tabula Rasa went poof. Gone. It was of little importance to me after the AP Euro exam. However, looking at this IKEA artist’s figure that I bought as decor brought me back to that day that I learned about tabula rasa. It’s interesting to note that this idea takes the side of “nurture” in the widely-known nature vs. nurture debate on which stimuli has the greater effect on human psychological development.
