The Futility of Any Anti-Metaphysical Position
AbstractThis essay explains why it is difficult or even impossible to reject metaphysics. By this we do not mean that metaphysical theories cannot be refuted; what we rather mean to say is that it is absolutely futile to deny the existence of metaphysics and its importance to human life. To do so would amount to the denial of the human capacity to go beyond the mundane, beyond the known, beyond the physical, to the transcendental, where experience is abstracted and reconstructed for the purpose of world transformation.
