Sample text

That glory in struggle and seeking of difficulty to work beyond it is a kind of virtue of virtues.  It should be particularly encouraged in women who need it more than anyone else in a competitive and indifferent society.  In the other direction the virtues form an order of perfection, love fulfilling artistry by providing it with an appreciator and an appropriator, and artistry fulfilling self­control by giving it an occasion for concrete exercise. Each of the general virtues, however, is worthwhile in itself, its own excuse for being.

That acknowledgment may arise, as it so often does when the ego first becomes conscious of itself, through a betrayal of trust that the self had in its protectors.  It is the direction of all childhood rebellion and the point toward which all regression in later life tends.  One who cultivates solitude is aware of the otherness of the other as a tragic failure of existence that provides the very freedom that crowns it.  The negation of that ego is not absorption into practicality but what William James called "panic fear," the breakdown of control over one's responses in the face of frustration from without or horror and revulsion from within.

From the standpoint of a life that is limited, dependent on an environment for its sustenance, and subject to termination, philosophy makes its judgments of significance.  The paradigmatic experience was, for him, that of the mere "compresence" or "juxtaposition'' of a percept and an awareness or a perceiving of it.  My perceiving of the sand spreading was discriminated from the percept and was on the edge of becoming aware of that split.  Whether or not such a project is pursued, the peace that surrounds a moment of conscious experience—the momentary character of which is evident—is compelling for a restless psyche.
