Overview

Combines a metaphilosophical broad view, as an ecology of interacting types, with a long view sketching historical trends and rhythms. Mediates between analysts and metaphysicians by re-classifying "category-mistakes" as sublimated animist traces serving culturative functions, the basic moments being invocative or attention-getting, commendatory of ways of life and thought, and integrative. Thus takes the animist as the venerable ancestor of all serious systematic philosophy, which at the least places man within both his world and his normative culture.
