> 1.  He briefly mentions Eudora Welty as a person who's immanent self had
expanded to encompass her transcendant self.  He stated that she could
finish writing a transcendant novel and then go make small talk at the local
post office without any problem of re-entry.  Isn't that the answer he was

Dear David,

This rings a bell with me.  That does seem to be part of the answer he was
seeking  --and seeking to find satisfaction in that answer.

I wonder does any one know what if any influence Dewey had upon him  --or
what he thought of Dewey's attempts to resolve dualisms.
