Miseries of Being
The metaphysics is absurd or human mind is not much enlightened as yet. In either of the case, the question of first or final or last cause is still the major question of human curiosity .one may say it’s the question of philosophy or it was.
Apparently the philosophers have shifted their focus from God to the being and they are more concerned about the existence rather than the designer in the late 19th century. Happiness seems to be the major quest and happiness for all is a fashionable jargon.
Those who did not bother to invent or discover the methods of happiness for the mankind are considered pessimists.
I assume those who did not bother to focus their search for
ultimate happiness of mankind were actually very happy people and those who were dying to decode the secrets of happiness for us , were in fact sadist and their personal lives were actually full of traumas and miseries.
I actually have started thinking about the grand shift of philosophers from metaphysics to existence.
The second question that has triggered my mind lately is about the universal happiness code, which became the major thesis of many western philosophers after the 18th century. Both the questions are inter connected and can be seen separately as well
Metaphysics is boring, let’s start it on a lighter note, the Big bang have got some bang and it is within the parameters of physics and compulsory in most of the cases for the new generations . Therefore, up till big bang its fine .If you are keen to go further we have got black holes for you as well. Do we agree that after black holes its metaphysics?
The work of almost two centuries of people like Kierkegaard and his apparent followers Nietzsche, Sartre and many others could not bring any an agreed upon and universally accepted code of happiness for the people of the world. Also, it should be noted, that if we do not have the agreed upon code of happiness, neither do we have the universal code of unhappiness. It would be insane to declare the Race as bunch of sadists and tragedy should not be presumed as essence of life. The search and quest of happiness for the self and for the others should not be stopped. However, the subject and questions of metaphysics should remain the basic and integral part of philosophy
Some time , I feel , that , the philosophers of this era are so tired or occupied with don’t know what , the role and questions of metaphysics have been apparently given to Stephen hawking and he is trying hard to bring and merge metaphysics into physics soon.
The happiness, thanks to psychology and its lucrative returns for the professionals, I suppose they are getting richer, while bringing back the happiness for the individuals on hourly basis. The philosophy seems like a lonely single , remembering about the love affairs of the past .
Work of Spinoza, I would not say , he was the prince of philosophy but rather the prophet or God of it , even in the presence of his Bible ( his work ) in hands , the Philosophers are diving in the realm of other subjects. Let it be metaphysics, let it be the search of final cause, let it be the search of first move, let it be the quest, to find ultimate push .Even the quest makes one learn a lot about other subjects and you may become a close friend of a micro biologist , but let’s remain the student of metaphysics .
