Should say something more about that little aside -- that there is something angelic going on in the interstice between percept and concept. That sounds messy, I know, in proper metaphysics -- let alone a philosophy that thumbs its nose at metaphysics (i.e., post-modernism and nearly all biblical theology and modern pastoral theology). However, if one is okay with the possibility of logismoi as a real pastoral problem (and not just some anachronistic nomenclature for a phenomenon that is better understood in scientific psychology), then how's this for a possibility? -- To wit: if logismoi are distorting and damaging insinuations that produce passionate disorders, then, on the other hand, what about positive insinuations that produce beauty and virtue -- concepts that cohere with "lawful" intentionality?
