Held – An Essay

Image result for ancient book


“Though there are many varieties of the view discussed. Utilitarianism is generally held to be the view that the morally right action is the action that produces the most good. “

The History of Utilitarianism | The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy


Held.

Something is held.

This holding is seperate from perceiving.

It is removed from direct observation.

Removed from the things that sight delivers to consciousness.

When something is held.

That thing becomes a book.

A book bound by the scope of its subject and the alphabet used to assemble it.

A book very much like the literal thing.

This metaphysical volume is imprinted on the synapses of those who hold it.

So it is that we have spent all ages trading books.
