Hello,

Before Darwin was devastated by the death of his daughter, Annie, Descartes was devastated by the death of his own young daughter some two centuries before...

One wonders if their "scientism" and the quest for the impersonal stance is not partly a flight from the pain and turmoil caused by these deaths...

I am looking for a quote by Mark Twain, when asked about the loss of his daughter he responded "that to attempt to communicate about such a loss would bankrupt the languages of the world."
