Swimming in Paradox: A New Mythological and Moral Framework
This project is evolving as I write it. The order of the writing may but the subject will be the same. It differs from my blog posts as not being particularly topical but is about creating a framework and an argufor that framework.
The idea for this book was generated by a realization I had twenty-five years ago that we had no logical basis for determining what is and is not moral. And we don’t have that because we have not metaphysical basis for anything–we don’t know who we are, what we want or who we are beyond our narrow self-interest and what “feels good.” We lack the fundamentals of what it takes to be a healthy culture. Since that time we have continued to degenerate morally–not against any particular historical metric, but simply we are becoming amoral or moral as either something that gives us comfort for something that fits in with our view of ourselves that could change with the change in fashion.
