His appeal, aside from his own behavior, was clearly tied to his good looks, his rural background, his spunk, and his unknownness
the healing "magic" of shamans as an invention of unknownness
Using the terms of Stanley Cavell, 1 might say that she is without the complex qualities of unknownness
(Garbo, Davis or Stanwyck), and without their invigorating eccentricity and confident transformative powers.
The aspiration of Emerson and Mill's apprisal, however, is that if we must succumb to such unknownness
, to being odd, seeming strange, coming to the end of analysis, withholding explanation, then, at least, we ought to be known to ourselves.
This is especially complex given the open-endedness and unknownness
of many complex organizational systems, and that the actors are operating in differentiated and political environments.
