Item description for Metaphysics for a Humanist by S. K. Leung...
This book offers a new look at some of the most established principles underpinning metaphysical thinking. The discussion is at once engaging and provocative, taking the reader through the big issues and the big thinkers from Aristotle to Wittgenstein, taking Descartes' cogito to task along the way. The author provides provocative discussions exposing and refuting the inherent weaknesses of conceptual reality, asserting support of epistemological over logical priority, and asking the question how do we conceptualize duration-past, present, and future-and reconcile that with oneness? The analysis concludes by showing that it is only humanity that can conceive of reality as necessary, contingent, or possible.
