The Drama of Metaphysics

"Western Philosophy has been a 2500-year conversation attempting to understand the reality which lies beyond the changing physical appearances of the world. This perennial metaphysical discussion provided the West with a framework for its beliefs, politics, morality, and common values. In the 20th century, this conversation was rejected in favor of new Materialist ideologies like Methodological Naturalism, Nazism, Nihilism, Communism, and Transhumanism. The success of these experiments in ideology hinge, though, on one central problem: Can man really be shaped into the image of his own making, or will his metaphysical identity always make a return?"

“A well-articulated treatise that explains the shards of our ruined society and offers the kind of hope we need to begin rebuilding civilization.” 
Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, OP, co-author with Dr. Ronda Chervin of Catholic Realism: A Framework for the Refutation of Atheism and the Evangelization of Atheists

“Stephen has done an excellent job of articulating the philosophical underpinnings of various worldviews in conjunction with the moral life of the human person. I highly recommend his work. Once you pick it up, it will be hard to put down.” 
Dr. Marianne Siegmund, Director of the MAPS and MDiv in the New Evangelization programs at Holy Apostles College & Seminary in Cromwell, CT

"It seems cliché to say that Western Civilization is at a crossroads. Actually, we are now beyond the crossroads a fair distance down the wrong path. In The Drama of Metaphysics, Stephen Beach details our missteps, encouraging the hope that civilization might somehow regain its bearings."  
Dr. Chris Gustafson, Director of the Regina Institute.
