Intentions

April 24, 2011

Genesis - Bernard Beckett

Just a provocation that came to mind when reading Bernard Beckett’s Genesis:

During one of their conversations, Adam tells Art, “your moving mouth is like my beating heart.  A machine, designed for a purpose but absent of intention.”[1]

Find the context in which this statement is made… What importance is Adam placing on intention and why? How do intentions make you who you are? Do they make you who you are?
