Ludwig Wittgenstein on "Christian Faith"-vis-a-vis Pascal -Kiergkegaardian Ethos-CULTURE & VALUE (P.46)--"philosophia cordis"

SURVEILLANCE, CRIME & PHILOSOPHY & CULTURE "No cry of torment can be greater than the cry of one man. Or again, no torment can be greater that what a singe human being may suffer. A man is capable of infinite torment, therefore, so too does he stand in the need of infinite help. The Christian religion is only for the man, who needs infinite help, solely, that is, for the man who experiences infinite torment. The whole planet can suffer no greater torment than a single soul. The Christian faith-as I see it--is a man's refuge in this ultimate torment. Anyone in such torment who has the gift of opening his heart, rather than contracting it, accepts the meaning of salvation from the heart." "Soren Kierkegaard was a saint." --Ludwig Wittgenstein C.F. Norman Malcolm, WITTGENSTEIN: A RELIGIOUS POINT OF VIEW?, Ed. Peter Winch (Ithaca: Cornell UP, 1993)
