The Nature Of Space: A Metaphysical And Aesthetic Inquiry [Pereira, Irene Rice] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. The Nature Of Space: A Metaphysical And Aesthetic InquiryAuthor: Irene Rice Pereira. Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that examines the fundamental nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, between substance and attribute, and between potentiality and actuality.

The word "metaphysics" comes from two Greek words that, together, literally mean "after or behind or among [the study of] the natural".

There is no 'eastern solution', as Christopher Hitchens said. Getting past the new terminology and metaphors reveals exactly the same flawed and tortured thought that plagues the monotheistic religions that westerners will be more familiar with.

In metaphysics, realism about a given object is the view that this object exists in reality independently of our conceptual philosophical terms, these objects are ontologically independent of someone's conceptual scheme, perceptions, linguistic practices, beliefs, etc.

Realism can be applied to many philosophically interesting objects and phenomena: other. The Metaphysical Club expresses the distance traveled by modern public intellectuals away from these assumptions. By so emphasizing personal qualities, Menand asks less of his subjects as thinkers, and thus less of his readers as critics.

Unlike Mills, he finds himself at book's end with no criteria clear enough to mount a firm evaluation. Many environmental aestheticians—most prominently, Allen Carlson—have drawn a distinction between “arts-based” and “nature-based” approaches to the aesthetics of nature and have argued that the widespread practice of using arts-based theories and categories to understand the aesthetics of nature is a mistake.

Metaphysics, branch of philosophy whose topics in antiquity and the Middle Ages were the first causes of things and the nature of being.

Later, many other topics came to be included under the heading ‘metaphysics.’ The set of problems that now make up the subject matter of metaphysics is extremely diverse.

He is the author of many books, including Being and the Between (winner of the Prix Cardinal Mercier and the J.N. Findlay Award for best book in metaphysics, ); Is There a Sabbath for Thought?: Between Religion and Philosophy; and God and the Between.

He has also edited five books and published more than 80 articles. DEFINITION.

Philosophy is an unstable derived cultural activity like the opera. The term metaphysics is derived from the Greek Ta Meta ta Physkia which means “the books after the books on nature.” When a librarian was cataloging Aristotle’s works, he did not have a title for the material he wanted to shelve after the material called “nature” (Physkia) — so he called it “after nature.” Originally, this wasn’t even a subject at all — it was a collection.
