Talk about the “The First Metaphysics and Current Metaphysical Concerns”.
- How the Pre-Socratic philosophers attempted to explain the nature of reality and the origin of life through materialism and spiritualism (idealism).
- Compare the Sophists’ metaphysical views with Socrates’ view concerning truths, morals, and view on the nature of being (human person) and reality.
- What particular and trending metaphysical topic (political, social, moral, etc.) can contemporary philosophers address their teachings and writings to challenge the mindset of our present society? Explain by discussing a concrete metaphysical issue and analyzing it like just the way the ancient philosophers (Pre-Socratics, Sophists, and Socrates) did in the Greek society after considering the different historical context.
