Reflection for the Week - October 19

We are, at the very least, a complex centre of agency entangled in recognition of responsibility. Any self-designation of being virtuous is thus connected to a practical, not a speculative end. That is, the purposeful result of actions should lead one in the direction of real-ly being and becoming good. In this regard, the human capacity of attestation; “I can” is to be recognized and embraced. And this configuration is appropriate since the dialogue partner for attestation is not doubt, but suspicion, which is the necessary critical ingredient for assessing the actions of “I can,” who not only has a capacity to testify/accomplish, but also to recognize/receive what is given. Don’t surrender “I can,” though aim to perceive it within recognition of “I am.”
