"He is a man without qualities . . .
There are millions of them nowadays
. . . What he thinks of anything will
always depend on some possible
context -- nothing is, to him, what it
is; everything is subject to change,
in flux, part of a whole, of an infinite
number of wholes presumably adding
up to a superwhole that, however, he
knows nothing about. So every
answer he gives is only a partial
answer, every feeling only an opinion,
and he never cares what something
is, only 'how' it is."
