Clean Slate

A fresh start. Tabula Rasa. Another chance after wiping out old experiences, failures, offenses or debts. To begin again without prejudice.

“Peter’s boss assured him that the matter was finished and he could start again with a clean slate.”

“Yesterday’s negotiations did not go well and we intend to start again today with a clean slate.”

“The company’s debts have been written off so that the new management can start with a clean slate.”

Tabula Rasa

1. A Latin phrase translated as “blank slate” or more literally as “erased slate” or Clean Slate. Originates from the Roman tabula that they used for notes. The slate started empty, upon which notes could be written, then erased to write again. 2.  The idea that people are born without built-in mental content and that therefore all knowledge comes from experience or perception. 3. Referenced in the writings of Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 BC.)
