Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
WHat is it about people like Buber and Freud that, coming upon a good idea, a rich insight, they immediately have to climb over the centerfield fence and insist they have discovered universal truth, the Global Definition? Have they no sense of context, of gradient reality, of shifting perspectives?

Interesting quote, for which thanks. It goes beyond the pale of traceable applicability and ends up spinning in the clouds of stardust where descriptions are amorphous and very hard to see clearly, IMHO.
