'The Wounds of Possibility'?

When in Amsterdam, Dr. Clark had an interview with Dooyeweerd, in which he asked whether there was absolute truth. Dooyeweerd replied in the negative. Clark wrote on a piece of paper: “There is no absolute truth,” handed it to Dooyeweerd and asked: “Is what is written absolute truth?”

I inquired, “What did Dooyeweerd say?” I was told this was the wrong question. I should have asked, “What did Dooyeweerd do?” and the answer was, “He smiled.”

Quoted from Absolute Truth by William Young, in Godon H. Clark: Personal Recollections, p. 117.
