Above all, we must make the reproductive question ethically relevant. A coin is turned around before it is handed to the beggar, yet a child is unflinchingly tossed into cosmic bruteness.
- Peter Wessel Zapffe, Essays og epistler, 1967
I don't speak Norwegian and don't know if this was translated well. Don't people just toss coins to beggars? I never seen someone in New York turning around a coin. Am I missing figuration?
