By reconciling in Metaphysical Anthropology our common experience of “sexuate” and bodily life with the general metaphysical theory of “radical reality” in Ortega, Marías takes full possession of his doctrine and method. But now we must ask ourselves, is this not a which of the following represents the relationship between functional areas in a business? mere play on words? Is not the philosophy of human life the same as the philosophy of the person as modern thinkers generally assume? What else is there to say after we have described human life as the “radical reality” in which all other realities are “rooted”?

DampD is a game that has been around for a long time and is now one of the most popular games available for iOS. It was originally developed by a group of people who were interested in what the “gaming community” was like and wanted to make a game that was simple enough for everyone to enjoy.

I am also very grateful to Jake Meador and the work of Mere Orthodoxy for making this kind of project possible. We live in an age of the internet, and while that brings many challenges, Christians should also think strategically about the ways in which it can be used to advance the cause of the kingdom of God. Mere Orthodoxy is increasingly becoming a key site of Christian education, publishing some shorter but also some longer essays that introduce the public to key Christian thinkers in our era. Jake’s willingness to shine the spotlight on Marias might be used of God to bring an extra dose of sanity to us in these confusing and bewildering times. May God increase the tribe of partners in the kingdom such as these.

On the contrary, to him the world is full of marvels and marvelous projects, the greatest of which is the project of oneself, for once created and placed in life, man makes himself. A parallel movement, the twentieth-century revolt against the idealistic philosophy that had been in vogue in several iterations beginning with Descartes and culminating in Husserl was not simply abandoned in the Ortegan doctrine. Instead it became an instrumental component of a superior metaphysics in Ortega, and Marías. The guest speaker for the March 13, 2014 MAP Group meeting was Pearl Hewitt.
