sense

“Sense inheres in language, in the propositions that make up language, which is why it is possible, so long after all the material references the Stoics made have disappeared (something that they themselves were well aware of—the inevitable decay of all that is material), that we can still attempt to seek what sense there remains, even in scattered fragments, even in secondary or hearsay texts. Even if we are not the intended or foreseen receivers of their writings and teachings, sense is directed to anyone, to any language.” (Elizabeth Grosz, The Incorporeal, p.41)
