Interpretation question.
    #11384465 - 11/04/09 04:25 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

What is the difference between something 'in itself' and 'of itself'?
Could you find an example for each one of them?

Singular/plural

'in itself' is more particular to an instance, such as a singular event whereas 'of itself' would be more indicative of a combination of incidences.

"The drama of WW11 of itself is unconnected to the Roswell incident. A metaphore in itself, however, is unrestricted by location."

Thanks for the brain-teaser.

I couldn't agree more. Now I understand the difference.:crazy2:

The more knowledge, the more grief.

I don't know the difference either but I grabbed the opportunity.
