Irrationalism: The Revolt against Reason 63 4. The Temporalization of Consciousness 79 5. The Buddhist Way 95 Notes 121 Index 129 Page ix Introduction Much of contemporary philosophy seems to be generally in a quandary with regard to the direction philosophy is to take in the future.

And this principle must apply to everything within the world and, above all, to the fact that there is a world, to the fact that there is something rather than nothing. The world does not simply follow of necessity from the nature of God as Spinoza would have it. This would amount to fatalism and destroy freedom in God. Rather, the world must be chosen by God according to the principle of fitness and what is best.
