THE GLOBAL INTELLECTUAL AND SELF WORTH: A CRITERION FOR THE CULTURAL SCIENCES

Joseph Pilotta

Abstract


On the occasion of scholar and teacher, Algis Mickunas’ 80th birthday, I wish to recognize his particular essay, “Th e Global Intellectual and Self Worth,” by expanding on his insights. I have chosen to expand this article by selecting another teacher and his student, Confucius and Yan Hui. Th e examined situation of the grief suffered by Confucius upon the death of Yan Hui provides context to the meaning of life as self-worth and life worth living.

Keywords


Confucius, Yan Hui, ur-modal, kinaesthetic, Mickunas, Context
