Bion: "It would seem absurd if the tension between these three groups –
science, religion and art – which are all fundamentally devoted to the
truth, was either so slack or so tense that it was unable to further
the aim of truth."
I wish someone would explain to me how either religion or art is "devoted to the truth." Surely the word is being used in a differently than it is used in connection with science and history. Or am I being hopelessly positivist?
As ever, Norm
P.S. "What is truth, said jesting Pilate, and would not stay for an answer." Hmm. N.
