When reading this I think that this sentence really stood out to be because its trying to tell us that we need to remove the biases that we have before we read. And to really take in a reading we must first look at the way the author is trying to set up the passage for you to understand. To try to really read it the way the author would read it. To understand it’s reasoning for writing it. Not to try and comprehend it us as the reader, with our bias and different view point of the author. I think what to take from this sentence is to take a step back and really try to understand why this was written rather than how we think it was supposed to be interpreted.
