    Jim Parker defined teleology as the thing fulfills it purpose.

    The same could be said for a “living” profession:

    “‘More important, however, are the multitudes served by TIC. Our
    responsibility—yours and mine, jointly and severally, IS TO PERPETUATE TIC.’” (Shall Chiropractic Survive? Vol 2 1959)
    “Time is fleeting and our enemies, inside and outside, are at work
    restricting your and our endeavors to perpetuate and save
    Chiropractic.” (Vol 28)
