Description

This philosophical discourse covers topics as diverse as time, causality, ethics, metaphysics, utopianism, politics, poetics, medicine, immunology, and theology. Its central thesis, that metaphysics is a science of immunology for the human spirit, reunites philosophy with its roots. Jacques Derrida has created a metaphysical virus, differance, which deconstructs the philosophical immune system, undermining the metaphysician's ability to defend the system against rhetorical attack. This work is an attempt to construct a superimmune system, consisting of a number of immune systems all operating in tandem, to defend both the physical and metaphysical systems against infection.
