Very simple. I will with an open mind consider their writings and their
ideas. Then what I personally do with them will depend on me at that
time. Some of them may be attractive to me and others may not be so.
Also I would not belittle the ideas or writings that does not appeal to
me or not convincing to me. Just suspend judgement. While I have not
given much thought to this issue, this is my off hand response. Hope
this helps.
