Synopsis

Minding Matter presents a group of philosophical essays thematically divided. The first chapters deal with issues of philosophizing and metaphilosophy. The remainder of the book covers issues of values and human affairs. The studies collected within are united by a common methodology of probative investigation and their common purpose to provide instructive insight into a varied spectrum of important philosophical issues. Each essay is connected to the next by representing common modus operandi, deploying the classificatory techniques that characterize the analytical mode of philosophizing in an endeavor to elucidate some larger-scale issues of traditional concerns in philosophy.
