I have no clue who Robert Sharf is and even less clue as to the writer of "Notes in Samsara" -- someone called "Mumon" who appears to have Mr. Sharf in his sights. What I do seem to understand is that from "Mumon's" point of view, Mr. Sharf would indeed "get it" if only he had his academic credentials screwed on correctly.
Friday, August 08, 2014I have at least one post pending on one Robert Sharf, who, I would submit, despite his academic credentials doesn't get it.That's a post for another day.
I wonder how often that happens ... the subtle and not so subtle invocation of the intellectual and emotional gods as a means of pinning down who "gets it" and who "doesn't."
Sorta like "compassion" when it means really, really, really, really, really, really nice.
