It is simply that which sneaks off at the mention of algebraic series.

From v.1 of Robert Musil’s Man Without Qualities (pg 106, in the Sophie Wilkins translation)

In her misery [Diotima] read a great deal, and discovered that she had lost something she had previously not really known she had: a soul.

What’s that? It is easy to define negatively: It is simply that which sneaks off at the mention of algebraic series.
