The following sentence is from Thinking, Fast and Slow (2011) by the psychologist Daniel Kahneman:
Questioning what we believe and want is difficult at the best of times, and especially difficult when we most need to do it, but we can benefit from the informed opinions of others.
I'd like to know how the last clause connects semantically to the rest of the sentence. Is it true to rephrase it as follows?
Although questioning what we believe and want is difficult..., we can benefit from the informed opinions of others.
