I had only a vague idea of what metaphysics was prior to reading this book. Had I known, I probably wouldn’t have snagged this book from whatever pile of used books it came from. But really, I should have had a clue. Wikipedia notes that metaphysics is the study of what transcends physics. Duh. Strike one on me. To tell the truth, such questions as Does the world exist outside the mind? don’t really interest me. I tend generally toward a view of philosophy as espoused by the pragmatists.
