Hello everyone:

The "consider" appears in texts very often, does “consider” means discuss or describe like the usage in following sentence?

Inthis opening chapter, we considerhow and why all these types of questions have become relevant topsychology’s goals as adiscipline.

The source is from Chapter 1 of the book Psychology and Life(18th Edition) by Richard J.Gerrig Philip G.Zimbardo.
Thanks in advance
