Desiring that and chipping away at that which I have chosen to term myself. "Ideally the emotions ought to be subject to the reason, but in fact through them the flesh and the material world are able to influence and sway the reason, resulting in sin and suffering. ...ideal of, as far as possible, to the divine apatheia...there is also a sense in which the idea of divine apatheia is, in its own way, ...the image of pure reason, abstracted from the human body and from the emotional aspects of human psychology, and it does so because this pure reason is what the thinker himself aspires to be....At its best, the notion of divine and human apatheia as a moral ideal suggested moral constancy, in which the will is able to maintain its loving purpose without being deflected."
