In the name of the Merciful Allah,
Hi, When I say: Most things that are enjoyed in and of themselves vary from person to person, I think of " in themselves" as they're considered joyful intrinsically alone, and " of themselves" as they're joyful through other things considered along with them, so " of" here refers to " resulting from" or "caused by". Am I right?
So, " of themselves" here refers to the same thing as " in themselves", which is the absence of the context. I don't think so.
What about the difference between the two of them?
I think the difference is in the existence of the context, for one of them.
Am I right?
