Authentic Metaphysics in an Age of Unreality

Second Edition, Second Printing

Leo S.J. Sweeney, William J. Caroll and John J. Furlong

In an age when appearances are often substituted for what really is, deception and falsity for honesty and truth, this metaphysics book takes things as they actually are and discovers that reality is actuality (which as subsistent is God), that philosophical knowledge in its content is caused by what is known and is objectively true. It considers goodness and beauty, human existents as individual, relational units (e.g., the family), agents and goals, chance and evil. It is in contrast with Sartrean existentialism, process philosophy, linguistic analysis, phenomenology, hermeneutics and deconstructionism.
