However, although early Stoic sources show that they also focused on both aspects (21), Epictetus' discussion of the notion of assent is based primarily on the second perspective, and the decisive issue shifts from the impressions assented to (22) to how they are taken in, i.e., whether they are taken in after careful analysis, which is precisely what the wise person does: Just as Socrates used to tell us not to live a life unsubjected to examination, so we ought not to accept an impression unsubjected to examination, but should say, 'Wait, allow me to see who you are and whence you come' (just as the night-watch say, 'Show me your tokens').
From early on, "Time Passes" renders existence in its anonymous and unsubjected state, existence as there-is, as interrogation:
(E 91) Of these 'resources'--which, we might note in passing, are fundamentally both subjective (that is anobjective) and asubject-ive (that is human)--the first, discernability, presents the most immediate problem: insofar as the event is radically unknowable there remains the dilemma of precisely how to discern when we are truly 'immortalized' in its wake, which is to say, how do we know when we are subject to good (truth) or subject to evil (the simulacrum of truth), or, conversely, to neither (and hence 'unsubjected')?
The contact of the speakers of West Saxon with their Britons did, however, not have the same impact as that of the North, probably for two reasons: first, because the ratio of immigrant Anglo-Saxons settlers versus the subjected Britons was higher than in the North; and second, because the unsubjected Britons in Cornwall and Wales were considered to be fierce enemies and contact with them seems to have been constantly hostile.
The British hostages who are mentioned in this entry seem to suggest hostile encounters with the unsubjected Britons.
Catherine is "[t]hat noble Dutchesse, who liv'd unsubjected," who fled "[f]rom Romes ridiculous prier and tyranny, / That mighty Monarchs kept in awfull feare" (24, 25-26).
Her novels may teach us contemporary readers about how the patriarchy works to deprive women of the ability to act, its ability to subject women, but they don't seem to offer us women resisting their subjection, women becoming active, unsubjected subjects, agents of a new social order--the latter of which is the larger feminist agenda.
[the] barbarous and unsubjected' Irish (in Smith 1984: 266) well illustrate Abrams's arguments about `the idea of State' and the legitimation of subjection.
