Is Kellus insane or not posted 22 March 2009 in The Judging EyeIs Kellus insane or not by Landrew, Candidate

I'm not so sure that merely what the 'ends' are has much to say about whether he is sane. For example, his ends may be preservation of humanity by defeating the consult. So one would conclude (based on Will's reasoning) that he is sane. But if concurrently he believes that he is both divine and divinely appointed to save the world, when he is not (making an assumption here), then he is probably insane at least to a degree, regardless of his ends, regardless of his steps towards those ends. For example, if he believes he can see haloes around his hands and takes that as proof of divinity when in fact they aren't there, he is at least somewhat insane regardless of whether his plan is to save the world. view post
