Summary
Metaphysics has traditionally been understood as reasoning beyond the reach of science, sometimes even claiming realities that are beyond its grasp. Because of this, metaphysics has often been comtemptuously dismissed by scientists and philosophers who wish to remain within the bounds of what can be scientifcally proved. Yet scientists at the frontiers of physics unwittingly engage in metaphysics, and they are now happy to comtemplate whole universes that are, in principle, beyond human reach. Roger Trigg challenges thouse who deny that science needs philosophical assumptions. In fact, Trigg claims that the foundations of science themselves have to lie beyond science. It takes reasoning apart from what can be experienced to discover what is not yet known, Such metaphysics helps us to conceive of realities apparently beyond our grasp. --from book jacket
