What Happens To Us When We Think: Transformation and Reality

by

What Happens To Us When We Think: Transformation and Reality Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explores the transformation humans undergo when they do metaphysics. Author Michael Gelven suggests that thinking metaphysically transforms us, and consequently the nature of metaphysics it self 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.

Book News Annotation:

Exploring the nature of metaphysical thinking itself, Gelven (philosophy) posits it as a profoundly transformative phenomenon. The nature of learning is conflictual and violent, he suggests, a violence that results in a transformation "from being real to the truth of being real," a transformation that requires dialectical language. He explores this process in terms of generals and politicians learning about wars and students learning in a classroom. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
