Description

Kevin Kaelin explores existence and the meaning of being in an age of over-simplified conceptions of religion, science, consumerism, materialism, pharmaceuticals, and government policy. Drawing from varied sources and extensive experience--from Sartre and Heidegger to David Lynch and LSD trips--Kaelin deconstructs the rigid architecture of thought that these conceptions have erected, simultaneously proposing the ability of phenomenological description to reveal truth. It is, ultimately, the self that either hinders or aids our understanding of what "is," and Kaelin is continuously aware of the catch-22 thereby created: if our beliefs determine our realities, how do we come to terms with the differing realities created by opposing beliefs? In this thorough and rigorous work, Kaelin sets out to prove that "if freedom lies anywhere"--whether it is freedom of thought, reality, being, or simple expression--"it is in our focus."show more
