Quick replies before going to sleep:
I am glad you take it well, and don't mind we disagree, although - honestly -
I find it hard to understand part of what you are saying. However... this
probably means, in considerable part at least, that we use words differently,
and indeed use different principles of inference. But yes, I know the stance -
and Sartre probably would agree far more with you than with me, especially if
he read my site.
And then, we agree also on something, that you put thus
....."for me it simply comes down to this: each of us must choose what is
right for her/his own inner truth."
I wouldn't put it thus, but I suppose I agree with the sentiment or end or
desire: That people have the courage to be themselves, rather than phonys or
frauds. (There still is the difference that I think that even so, there are
lots of truths that hold for all, whether they know these truths or not, but
then you side with Sartre and I with Orwell or Russell.)
Thanks for providing Mr Van Houdenhoven's specialism and for providing the
links, that unfortunately I can't check out just now because my computer's
sound system decided there's no beep left in it, for some unfathomable reason.
I'll have to salt up judging him but I do appreciate the links i.a. because
this is more helpful than a link to a medicalese paper by him.
Best wishes to both of you, Maarten. (And to others on the forum too: I
meanwhile read some pretty impressive life-stories, and like people with
character and courage.)
