From Dunne’s Back to the Rough Ground:

If the ethical life which is taken up with these human affairs now appears, by contrast with the godly life of theory, almost as a cavelike mode of existence, then one begins to ask whether phronesis, for all its suppleness and flair, does not appear, from the vantage point of theory, much as a dog’s great sensitivity in smelling and sniffing might appear from the vantage point of phrnesis itself (240).
