In neither case , does the activity of a postman emerge as something which could be good if it existed in isolation . Try now the activity of nursing . You have to think of a nurse tending a sick person in a bed , though there is no real world outside the hospital ward . I am supposing we can include the patient as a real conscious person as ` part ' of the nursing activity . If one can not , one gets a deluded loner nursing a dummy . But even as it is , you get something rather odd . The patient has no destiny beyond whatever duration is required to get an episode of nursing , and she has no real past , nor does the nurse .

The former requires so that the concentration is advected into the salt fingers little changed by diffusion . In order of magnitude where W is a typical vertical velocity in the fingers , L is the depth over which the convection is occurring ( its exact definition depending on just how the system is set up ) and ta ; is the width of the fingers ( Fig. 23.1 ) . Thus On the other hand , thermal diffusivity is changing the temperature as fluid moves up and down the fingers . Hence , i.e. where &Dgr;T V is a typical temperature difference between top and bottom and &Dgr;T H that between downgoing and upgoing fluid . Moreover , we are supposing that heat conduction makes so we require In order to use ( 23.10 ) and ( 23.14 ) to constrain ta ; , we require an estimate of W from the dynamical balance between the buoyancy force and one ( or both ) of the inertia force and the viscous force . The buoyancy force is provided by &dgr;&rgr; c ( which is , in the first place , the difference between upgoing and downgoing fingers , but , in view of the above discussion , may be taken as the difference between top and bottom ) .

Are you supposed to find out who killed Hereward or where Amy is ? ' ` I think the Church are supposing it would be one and the same . ' ` You sound as though you do n't make the same inference . ' Theodora recounted to Laura the phone call she had had from Gilbert Racy and her own finding of the wedding ring in the Dersingham chapel of St Benet Oldfield . ` That seems to me rather to reinforce suspicion that Amy killed Hereward , ' Laura said . ` Oh I admit she had a motive . The marriage stank . ' It was Laura 's turn to raise an eyebrow .

Owen was silent . Mahmoud was not , however . ` Marks on the body , ' he said . ` How she died . ' ` I see . ' The Prince considered the matter thoughtfully . ` Important as that is , ' he said , ` I am not sure that it is worth five thousand pounds . Certainly not to me . After all , if what I think you are supposing is true , it would hardly be in my interest for such information to emerge . I speak hypothetically , of course .

Would it not , as it were , clear the matter up ? And might not that be worth five thousand pounds ? ' ` I do see your point .

First he looks for the one that he likes or that matches his needs , then he sees if it fits . Last of all he pays for it . In the same way Christianity is presupposed by a searcher before it is proved . In fact it is presupposed to see if it is worth proving . The searcher says to himself , ` If Christianity is true , what difference would it make ? ' And when he asks that question (a) he is presupposing it provisionally . Not until the third level of understanding is reached are Christian presuppositions seen as certain ( the suit ` fits ' ) ; and not until the fourth level are they accepted as final and chosen as personal ( the suit is paid for ; it belongs ) . Christian presuppositions are simply Christian-truths. presupposed .

However , in abstract thinking it has always been our habit to assume the role of Ego perfectly isolated from spontaneity ; and even when in theory we have learned to distinguish the play-acting from real life , we are still liable to slip back into thinking as though the agent applying ` Be aware ' were indeed an Ego unaffected by inclination veering with awareness . As long as the habit clings , to derive evaluations directly from ` Be aware ' will feel like making an indefensible leap to value from fact . However , let us assume that the habit is broken . So far (a) we have been presupposing a single agent responding to a present situation and trying to guide his spontaneity by reason . Submitting to ` Be aware ' , he attends closely to his situation and to his own reactions , and instead of trying to infer from principles how he ought to respond , discovers how when most aware he does respond , and perhaps surprises himself by an impulse contrary to social convention or to his own self-image .

This presupposes that " Renaissance dramatists did know Seneca . " * Finally , another place for presuppositions to hide is in a clause which sets the scene in a sentence ; an example is the TEMPORAL CLAUSE , as in the following example : When Blake saw his first angels he was sitting in his garden . This presupposes that Blake saw angels . It is worth checking your essay to make sure that you are not presupposing things which you do n't believe are true , and that you are n't hiding anything in a presupposition which needs to be made explicit and justified . But presuppositions are essentially a tool rather than a nuisance -- a way of expanding the power of your writing by enabling you to say a lot in a short space . They allow you to imply things without saying them directly , and so to develop complex arguments in relatively short passages of writing .
