An Introduction to Metaphysics - 
Say "Hello" to the Exploration of the Nature of Reality

introduction to metaphysics

Exploring Metaphysics for Life is a great way to introduce yourself to the vast, and sometimes overwhelming, study of metaphysics - the scientific, philosophical and practical examination of the true nature of what we call "reality".

There are many ways to approach the voyage into the exploration of the true nature of reality.

Use of the five senses is of course the usual and, in many ways, the most practical way to begin. However, assuming that reality is limited to only those aspects that can be seen, heard, tasted, smelled or touched is completely unrealistic and will result in unsatisfying results.


Expanding your options and experience with the use of non-physical senses such as intuition, inspiration, feelings and thought allows you to explore the non-physical aspects as well as the physical nature of "reality".

Try not to get too bogged down in words and definitions, trying to understand what metaphysics is or who said what when. Although the term "metaphysics" has its origins around the time of Aristotle in Greece, the big questions that it asks, such as "Who are we? Where did we come from? Why are we here?" etc., are as old as human consciousness - and who can honestly say when that began?

If Metaphysics for Life is your first introduction to metaphysics I hope you will return often and take full advantage of all the knowledge, tips and resources available to you here.

Listen to the audiobook "Introduction to Metaphysics" by Henri Bergson

The Nobel Laureate discusses not only how and why he became a philosopher but also his conception of philosophy as a field distinct from science and literature. A source of inspiration for physicists as well as philosophers, Bergson's essays declare the emphasis of intuition over intellect.
