Solving Metaphysics Part I - Metaphysics in a Nutshell: A Lazy Philosopher's Guide

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
This essay proposes that metaphysics is best done as lazily as possible, and that a lazy approach, which some would call 'high level', is effective where it means that issues are simplified and unpleasant facts are faced with no wriggling on the hook. It sketches out the solution proposed by Buddhism or more generally mysticism. It suggest that the principle obstacle to a solution for metaphysics is Russell's Paradox, and that it can be overcome.
