By Vittorio Possenti,Brian Schroeder,Daniel B. Gallagher
Challenging the concept that nihilism has supplanted metaphysics, Vittorio Possenti unearths during this philosophical flip the grounds for a mature renewal of metaphysics. Possenti takes the reader on a “third voyage” that is going past the “second voyage” indicated via Plato within the Phaedo. He strains the ascendancy of nihilism in philosophy, providing severe examinations of Nietzsche, Gentile, Heidegger, Habermas, Husserl, Gadamer, Ricoeur, and Vattimo. With penetrating bills of philosophical routine resembling hermeneutics and logical empiricism, wealthy with either ancient and theoretical insights, Possenti presents a compelling protection of the ability of human cause to understand the obvious but in addition the main profound element of items: that they exist. by way of exploring the ubiquity of nihilism and probing its philosophical roots, Possenti clears the way in which for a clean reformulation of metaphysics.
“…offers the reader a daring thrust to the guts of theoretical nihilism from the point of view of Thomism, perceived because the bulwark of the perennial philosophy of being.” — Maritain Studies
