I’ve not yet read Thomas Nagel’s work Mind and Cosmos, but I could be attempting such in the next few months. Not trusting in the seeming certainty of the human perspective does not negate science in it’s ideal. Rather, as I found delightfully worded in Marcel Gleiser’s book, “A Tear at the Edge of Creation” there is little possibility that we will fully understand reality. From what Gleiser intended I stray since I take it several steps further. By doubting that we have taken hold of enough to even begin correctly anticipating how all of what we know fits together questions the meta-ideas we imply.
Now, I still may come to the end of Nagel’s ridiculed book questioning where he came up those arguments, but I’m one of those willing to read things outside my typical arguments. So, wish me luck in some fashion.
