The human experience is by nature philosophical. In his new book Metaphysics and Humanity author Robert Dray reveals why our religious, moral, social, and political beliefs are anchored in intuitive metaphysical assumptions about the world. The meaning our world has for us is always a philosophical interpretation of primary metaphysical experiences. Philosophy is the discipline through which we make sense of our metaphysical experiences, and the study of the history of philosophy is, therefore, a journey in self-understanding. But philosophical explanations are inherently paradoxical and have been the source of unending argument and conflict. The author reveals why this is so through a critique of the world's greatest thinkers from the pre-Socratic Greeks to the twenty-first century. Our understanding of the world, the experience of the divine, and human nature itself hangs in the balance because our need to make our metaphysical experiences meaningful necessarily introduces contradiction and paradox into our lives. The history of philosophy is, therefore, a history of how paradoxical beings have tried to make their lives meaningful. Metaphysics and Humanity is a journey in self-understanding as seen through the ideas of the world's greatest thinkers.
