  • Mood:

present or past tense?

how would you translate "we have learned nothing" into french?

it's from pablo picasso talking about how art hasn't advanced since people painted in caves 30,000 years ago. in french is that "on n'apprend rien", because we're continuing to learn nothing? "on n'a rien appris" sounds weird to me because it's a completed action.

thanks!
