Metaphysics Reclaimed: How Religion and Science Can Be Partners by Joseph Schrock
While this book is written from the perspective of one who has faith in a Spiritual Realm, the book can be read with great interest by a strictly secular thinker. The general nature of philosophy and its value are discussed in the first chapter. Then immediately succeeding chapters discuss logic, mathematics, physics, a general approach to ontology, epistemology (the nature – and limits – of human knowledge), an outlook on cosmology, human and animal psychology, and the final 2 chapters pertain to human ethics and the Divine Reality. A book of this sort might well have the greatest appeal to philosophically inclined individuals, but anyone who is concerned about the modern tendencies toward a secular and scientifically-minded ethos being our arbiter of knowledge, truth, morality, value and other monumentally vital human concerns can (conceivably) gain insights into a sound basis for thinking rationally, intelligently, and (yes) spiritually.
