Discussion about science and religion has typically progress on the foundation of a technical and scientific analysis of religion, or in other words a religious evaluation of science. Unsurprisingly, the cognitive psychology of judgment has determined that the result will be either predominantly religious or predominantly scientific.
Since 18th century through current 20th century the study of latest Metaphysics has usually been practiced within the history of philosophy. Implementation in quite a few disciplines, literary and scientific, as well as philosophical and historical, appeared to rule out considerate Metaphysics as an analytic discipline.
Yet as the ongoing century advancement, science and new technology offered the indecision principle, literature discovered new ways that make clear how one discourse or horizon may merge into another. Moreover, history changed its means from the study of atomistic information to the recounting of meaning, and no doubt philosophy challenged experiential constructions of reality. On this deep topic a great work done by David Birnbaum, basically in two arrangements entitled Summa Metaphysica (1988 and 2005), which point out that that Metaphysics may appear as a critical field once again.
A great philosophical study of David Birnbaum is “God and Evil” which systematically tackles the philosophical concern of evil and the Holocaust in as well, enriched with a deep comprehensive and researched review on this vast subject. In an undoubtedly presented and readable explanation, Birnbaum then suggests a powerful and original formulation. He combines classic and modern, mystic themes and rationalist, and meanwhile Birnbaum’s suggested solution to the ancient concept of evil is perhaps the most elegant to appear in recent times.
News casting philosophically and biblically, Birnbaum’s formulation recommends that two paths lie down before humankind. The first, the pathway of reliance on God that while leading to ultimate heaven, is humanly unsatisfactory and unsettled. And the second thing, the path of utmost potential – in which the individual gains full responsibility and freedom via a path burdened with considerable risk, although ultimately more possibilities.
As stated by Birnbaum’s, Quest for Potential – drives Man and God and the Cosmos. God of Potential is placed side by side against Man of Autonomy, Potential and Freedom. Potential is the nexus.
The first of two books in Birnbaum’s attraction two-volume Summa Metaphysica series is “God and Evil” (1988) tailored over a period of twenty-six year. The second innocent book, “God and Good”, was online on the internet in 2005 and published in 2009. In Book No.1 of the series, the writer introduces the perceptions of Quest for Potential, as well as God of Potential. And in Book No.2 Birnbaum shapes the theory of Infinite Divine Extraordinariation; the infinite consciousness or spirituality as well as trying to focus on the Potential – Point. The Summa series reforms the contours of philosophy, metaphysics, and theology.
