Two Different Ways To Depart From Isolation, from CSL’s “Membership”

“A convict has a number instead of a name. That is the collective idea carried to its extreme. But a man in his own house may also lose his name, because he is called simply ‘Father.’ That is membership in a body. The loss of the name in both cases reminds us that there are two opposite ways of departing from isolation.”

C.S. Lewis, from the essay “Membership” in, The Weight of Glory
