Their policies and standpoints are based primarily on information developed through scientific practices, but they also reflect ethical concerns, including the conservation of the diversity and abundance of fish populations, and respect for life and life processes. Further, these societies believe that their members are responsible not only for advancing scientific knowledge and understanding of fish and fisheries but also for improving human appreciation for these animals and the industries that they support.
Lohmeyer believes that in Philippians 4: He therefore labels this pericope as 'thankless thanks', in keeping with earlier scholars. Vincent sharply disagrees with this view, saying that 'only the most perverted and shallow exegesis' can describe Paul's words as 'thankless thanks', yet he admits 'It is characteristic that there is no formal expression of thanks' beyond Paul's recognition of the spiritual significance of the act.
Hawthorne defines the problem specifically: Gnilka, Der Philipperbrief Freiburg, Herder Vincent attributes the label to Holsten, it was at least known in the late nineteenth century, A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on Reader response peterman 2 Epistles to the Philippians and to Philemon Edinburgh, T.
In order to demonstrate these assertions it is proposed to discuss I the 'thankless t h a n k s ' convention from a first century letter, P.

Chairas to his dearest Dionysius, many greetings and continued health. I was as much delighted at receiving a letter from you as if I had been in my native place; for apart from that we have nothing.
As her article deals with the structure of Philippians, however, it does 7 not discuss first century conventions regarding gratitude. Text and translation from H. Idris Bell and C. London, Emery Walker Limited The provenance of P.
The correspondents here are apparently physicians, ibid. Chairas receives from Dionysius a prescription for plasters Chairas is in fact offering an expression of thanks. But it should be remembered that in the first century world a profuse expression of debt was a way of requesting additional gifts or favours.
Mott, 'The Power of Giving and Receiving: Social Convention in Philippians 4: The logic of his comments may be reconstructed this way—Assertion: I need not give you verbal thanks. Verbal thanks are given to those who are not friends. We are intimate friends.
Thus, the editor of this papyrus rightly comments that verbal thanks are misplaced between intimate friends, deeds are the proper medium between them. For if it were so it would be at best superfluous and at worst an insult.
Rather, his purpose is to rehearse the social convention in order to assert his intimacy with Dionysius. Chairas in effect declares that their relationship has passed to a deeper level of intimacy in which verbal gratitude would be inappropriate if not socially awkward. When Chairas states that verbal gratitude is necessary only for those who are not friends, he in effect says, 'We are friends'.
Though Chairas claims that verbal thanks are inappropriate he states plainly that the issue is only the verbal gratitude. For Chairas draws an explicit distinction between written or verbal 11 gratitude and material gratitude: Despite his claim to the contrary, Chairas is in reality offering a form of verbal thanks.
First, his reflections on the suitability of verbal thanks merely take the place of an actual Patristic Interpretation, G. Grand Rapids, Eerdmans Suffice it to say that an acknowledgement of debt or a statement of one's intention to repay appears to be the most common element of verbal gratitude.
First, verbal gratitude is misplaced among those who are intimate. The assumption underlying Chairas' statement is that verbal gratitude might be thought appropriate in such a context viz. Yet he denies its appropriateness here because of his friendship with Dionysius.
Second, the gratitude which is suitable and required here is material gratitude. Third, because material gratitude is central, it follows that verbal gratitude, if offered at all, has as its key element an expression of debt or of one's intention to repay.
Ostensibly, Chairas claims to dispense with offering verbal thanks.
In actuality, he states his desire to repay Dionysius. Thus, despite his claims to the contrary, the writer does in fact offer thankless thanks.On Ancient Philosophy - Kindle edition by John Peterman.
