Re: A Short Quotation from Works of Love
- Dear James,
You have written in message 5061, I think it was you and you alone but
who knows... Perhaps you did it* as a gang:
"The stoic probably wouldn't use it, the Buddhist -might- prefer the
word "compassion" and say that's what /we/ really mean by love, while
the ethical-sphere Christian would certainly appropriate it, and
probably in the same way you do in your description below."
I am curious: "we" refers to... You and I? I am not aware to have
participated to the redaction of this paper. We? Who is we? Did you
mean James and James? James, are you a part of that we?
Or was it some other we? In a word: who is we?
Another question: can you - and I mean you alone - indicate the
passage in K. upon which you ground and derive your consideration over
the stoic and the Buddhist as opposed to the Christian. I'd be
interested in having the exact reference of the passage. If you need
time, please say so and please take it. I am in no hurry.
Thank you for your coming answer (please be so kind as not erasing it
before I have read it or I shall not know whether I should consider it
or the fact that it was erased as the proper answer) and thank you for
your restored trust. Have you heard of Ron lately? I have tried to get
in touch with him but apparently he is no longer there. I hope he is fine.
* the /emphasis/ around the "we" in this passage was added by the
author of the present message to locate and indicate the object of his
