"What I like most about the book is that it is a fully developed, comprehensively argued, philosophical system. There are precious few of these, for reasons Desmond discusses, and here is one, all in one book. Although anticipated in Desmond's earlier books, here is the system fully expressed in Western philosophy. His erudition is exquisite, yet his expositions make this book wonderfully useful for philosophy majors who would be excited to read a philosopher interacting with the figures to which they have been introduced." -- Robert C. Neville
From the Back Cover
As Plato told us long ago, the human being is neither a god nor a beast, but someone in between. Philosophy too is in between. How do we philosophize in between? What is the being of the between? This book answers the question in the most comprehensive terms possible. It offers an original understanding of metaphysical thinking and the fundamental senses of being, namely, the univocal, equivocal, dialectical, and metaxological senses.
