Metaphysics [NOOK Book]

Overview

Many of the problems of philosophy are of such broad relevance to human concerns, and so complex in their ramifications, that they are, in one form or another, perennially present. Though in the course of time they yield in part to philosophical inquiry, they may need to be rethought by each age in the light of its broader scientific knowledge and deepened ethical and religious experience.

    Not only is it an illegible/unreadable scan, but it is also an incorrect scan. This is evidenced by the one legible item, the 1897 Harvard College library stamp for a book that was originally published in 1970.
