Example text

In this maneuver of reason, the "valid" moral significance, stemming from valuation, will recede before a surreptitiously substituted one, and the evil significance of this strategem itself will be concealed. Once introduced, this phenomenon, known by the term "hypocrisy," pervades with its intrinsic sense the interpretative system and robs the self-interpreting subject of the natural significance of his existential script. When we compare the effects of the malefic interpretation of the transactional interacting upon its "actor" on the one side, and its "sufferer" on the other side, we will come to a result perplexing for the representatives of the vitalistic or utilitarian ethics.

The "moral enjoyment" of our acts, in which we should otherwise suffer while surrendering our interest to those of others, is a counterbalancing experiential factor essential to the establishment of the moral interpretation within intersubjective interaction. What we may lose in the existential transactional circuit, we may gain in the moral enjoyment of our benevolence, which surpasses all other types of joys by giving value to our own being as experienced by us and thereby strengthening our existential force by self-confidence, selfreliability, and ultimately self-worthiness.

Furthermore the qualitative nature of emotions is diffusive, as is their dynamic impact: unlike benevolence, it is not purposively oriented but diffusively animates the functional system of its subject. Hence we should conclude that benevolence, which is to be identified neither with sensing, feeling, nor emotive experience, is an experiential instance sui generis. Its qualitative complex of interfused and undissociable moments consists of a spontaneous striving, which pervades the already established functional state of the subject.
