Destiny and the Will

Destiny and the Will

(p.50) 3 Destiny and the Will
A Parliament of Souls

Stephen R. L. Clark

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses three fears and, consequently, appeals to the work of poets as well as scientists and philosophers. It also refers to gods, demons, and fairies. The first fear is that what occurs is not to be influenced by us, but instead rolls on regardless of our mortal plans. The second fear is that even if one of our actions does affect the world, it is not originally ours, and the third is that the very same things happen again and again, without hope of novelty or tangential escape.

Keywords:   fears, poets, mortal plans, scientists, philosophers, gods, fairies, demons
