Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.3 IK

Summary of text [comment] page 83

[In the interscope, the categorical transition of obligation goes with the content level nested form:

Thought experiment3a( something2,a( __1a))

One type of obligation is responsibility. The other type is words.

Here is the arena where freedom in God or bondage in Satan plays out.

Once an obligation illuminates the mirror of the world3a, then (what Schoonenberg called) “service” follows.]


Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.3 II

[The general term ‘obligations’ contains both ‘responsibility’ and ‘words’.

Responsibility stands in contrast to words.

Both are categorical transitions within the intersection.

Both go with the horizontal nested form:

Thought experiment3H(my choice2V and something2H(__1H))

Here is the arena of free choice, for good or evil.

Here is where the obligation is forged as either responsibility or delusion.]
