That is why to deny the "reality of subjective truth" in some sense is to deny the "reality and concerns of human experience"
I think the meaning of 'passion' is a bit problematic in these contexts. In classical Eastern philosophy, the sage is invariably depicted as 'one beyond passion'. It is likewise with the Stoics and in fact much traditional philosophy. On the other hand, though, you have the image of 'the passion of Christ' and 'the compassion of the Bodhisattva' (wisdom being).
One of his most intriguing sermons on the "highest virtue of disinterest," unique in Christian theology both then and now, conforms to the Buddhist concept of detachment and more contemporarily, Kant's "disinterestedness." Meister Eckhart's Abgeschiedenheit was also admired by Alexei Losev in that contemplative ascent (reunion with meaning) is bound with resignation/detachment from the world. The difference is that truth/meaning in the phenomenological sense was not the only result, as expressed in Eckhart's practical guide "for those who have ears to hear", but creation itself. He both understood and sought to communicate the practicalities of spiritual perfection and the consequences in real terms.
I also connected the word passion with a constellation of thoughts when I read VE's post. Passion has deep roots within us. It has us reaching out without thinking. But like Dido's passion, it can be ultimately for nothing. Is that looking at things objectively? To know meaninglessness?
Disinterest, in the philosophical sense, is far more noble than mere 'objectivity'. Objectivity may be alright for jurors and lab workers, but the esteem in which it is held as a 'philosophical virtue' is just one of the prejudices of modernity.
you mean philosophers actually believe in faith? i knew they believed in passion...
is kierkegaard saying that our faith in a thing makes it true as far as we are concerned?
Faith is a passion (possibly even the highest passion attainable in a man). Not all passion is faith.
It's true in so far as it is your way of living as Wittgenstein says. The belief or proposition may or may not be true objectively.
