SUNY Press, 1. 2. 2012 - Počet stran: 157
Explores the transformation humans undergo when they do metaphysics.

Author Michael Gelven suggests that thinking metaphysically transforms us, and consequently the nature of metaphysics itself is transformational. Using concrete existential phenomena such as the learning process, how children mature into adults, and how fear can develop into courage, he establishes an understanding of metaphysical transformation.

Michael Gelven is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Northern Illinois University and the author of many books, including Truth and the Comedic Art, also published by SUNY Press, and A Commentary on Heidegger’s Being and Time, Revised Edition.
