PHIL 6650 Philosophy of Being II (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Reconstruction in the metaphysics of becoming and time requires a distinction of matter and form in things that come to be and a distinction of essence and the act of being in finite being. Reconstruction in the metaphysics of being as universe requires communication among the many and diverse beings encountered as one universe, leading to the question of a necessary being. We explore how such distinctions are disclosed in our experience of being and how we go from affirming contingent beings to affirming a necessary Being at the summit of being.
