Che ce ne rendiamo conto o meno, tutti abbiamo una filosofia. Ma siccome l. a. nostra filosofia può avere conseguenze enormi sulla nostra vita e su quella delle persone che ci sono vicine, è bene sapersela costruire con cura. Il modo migliore consiste nel partire dall’alto, da quella che gli esperti chiamano metafisica.

Purtroppo, gli adulti hanno perso los angeles capacità di farsi queste domande. Quasi sempre sono chiusi in un recinto mentale che li rende conformisti, impauriti, prigionieri.
In questo libro troviamo le istruzioni avventurose according to superare quel recinto e utilizzare l. a. metafisica nella vita d’ogni giorno, nella scoperta di se stessi. in line with accompagnarci in questo viaggio, Sibaldi riprende l. a. più grande storia metafisica mai raccontata: l’Esodo di Mosè verso l. a. Terra Promessa. Usciti, come Mosè, dalla prigionia d’Egitto, e passati al di là del deserto, possiamo riconquistare los angeles possibilità di avere possibilità innumerevoli e il coraggio di lasciar avvenire ciò che desideriamo.

Levy argues that simply because epistemic stipulations on regulate are so difficult that they're infrequently happy, brokers aren't blameworthy for acting activities that they take to be top in a given state of affairs. It follows that if there are any activities for which brokers are accountable, they're akratic activities; yet even those are unacceptably topic to success. Levy is going directly to speak about fresh non-historical compatibilisms, and argues that they don't provide a doable substitute to control-based compatibilisms.
