The Metaphysical Legitimation of a Praxis-Oriented Theory

A three-part study of metaphysical legitmation of a Praxis-oriented theory. Part One will interpret Hegel's philosophy of the Absolute Spirit as praxis-oriented on the basis of the realization of metaphysics. Part Two will show how the main currents of thought have engaged themselves in "pure theory," have been incapable of genuine engagement and less than "critical" and have reverted, at least in part, to the unhistorical and worldless theory of Greek thought. Part Three will attempt to trace how metaphysics has historically been the basis of praxis-oriented philosophical theory of Nietzche, Kant and Augustine. Attempt will be made to show that there has been a misinterpretation of Hegel.
