Xavier Le Pichon speaks of "fragility" and "vulnerability."

In my book, "The Bitterness of Job: A Philosophical Reading" (U. of Michigan Press, 1989), I argued that (human) vulnerability or weakness was a central theme of the theophany near the end of the biblical Book of Job--that human weakness in relation to other creatures was one of the three themes in the speech of God from the whirlwind--that human weakness, not God's power, was the relevant point there. And then I tried to explain how that theme was related to the central dialogue, with its debate over the problem of evil, and to the opening and closing parts of the book.

Some of your listeners/readers might be interested.
