Queen of the academic world for
2,000 years, Philosophy has been in disrepute for roughly the last 300 years.
It’s said she’s hopelessly barren. Is Philosophy the infertile party, or have
all her suitors been sterile?
This book fingers the suitors. It
says they rendered themselves impotent by abusing three crucial terms: “substance”,
“substratum”, and “existence”. The author spells out their erroneous
definitions and presents the correct ones.
With those three terms properly
defined, Philosophy gives birth to the “Holy Grail” of Metaphysics: a
non-singular solution to the theory of ultimate particles. That’s a theory
which so defines the universe’s ultimate constituents as to leave each physically
indivisible but divisible in principle and, therefore, capable of
internal change without ceasing to be the same ultimate. Concretely defined,
such ultimates render Philosophy so fertile, she can give a philosophical but
mathematically precise accounting for neutrinos, anti-neutrinos, leptons,
quarks, atoms, galaxies, electro-magnetic radiation, gravity, relatively
instantaneous travel to all parts of the universe, etc..
This book is a must read for all
Philosophy’s genuine devotees. For, in its pages, Philosophy commences her
resurrection, the reclamation of her throne, and her race with Science to find
Science’s “Holy Grail”: The Theory Of Everything.
