Metaphysical assumptions are and have always been a necessary and unavoidable part of human life. Unfortunately, today we have fallen into the catastrophic belief that our basic perceptions of reality do not rest on metaphysical judgments but are purely physical. If we use the term metaphysics at all, it is only to refer to abstract philosophical ideas or, worse, to half-crazed religious attitudes. Consequently, we have rendered ourselves unable to distinguish between the metaphysical and non-metaphysical aspects of any knowledge and are still less able to judge whether our hidden or flaunted metaphysical assumptions are faulty and, if so, how they might be corrected. The Metaphysical Imperative explores the nature of metaphysical assumptions, how they are all-pervasive, which ones dominate our attitudes today, what their flaws are, and how we might improve them.

If you value M. Scott Pecks The Road Less Travelled, Merton, Hesse, Pirsig, Simone Weil, St. Theresa and St. John of the Cross, you'll benefit from Puhek. It's plainly written but maximumly intense integration work for a modern age. His reflections build on, and develop through, many works, including those of Plato, Sartre, Jung and Freud. END
