Desmond explores perplexity regarding ultimacy-the metaphysical perplexity that precedes and exceeds scientific and commonsense curiosity. Desmond writes about the metaphysical perplexity that cannot be identified with scientific or commonsense curiosity. This perplexity is in another dimension of thought, asking questions about what precedes and exceeds the determinate intelligibilities of science and common sense. Desmond explores what this perplexity is, especially in so far as it is shadowed by the question of ultimacy. This work complements Desmond's Being and the Between.
