I cannot think of Bucky without thinking of you.
Thanks for introducing me.
My research leads me to believe that "every" moral issue distills to reification, a word deriving from the Latin "res" meaning "thing."
When we treat a human person -- that unique, irresolvable blend of "the objective" and "the subjective" -- as a "thing," hell breaks loose.
It seems in the nature of "things" that this is so.
Medieval philosophy - for all its genius - contributed to the persistent belief that the soul is a thing - not a process, not a verb.
When Yaweh first identifies "himself" in the Old Testament, "he" says "I am who am," a quintessentially existential utterance that uses the verb "to be" twice.
Yaweh seems to be a verb.

PS When did you last promote your idea of "life scholarships?"
