About the Book

Jay Dyer, the popular comedian, TV host, and author shares fifteen essays that have never before been published in book form. The essays span a variety of topics, including his thoughts on symbology, apologetics, alchemy, and number theory. In an essay on metaphysics, he argues that with the exception of a few philosophers, it has been jettisoned for pragmatism, postmodernism, and other forms of self-destructive prattle. He also leads readers on a deep dive of Phaedo, the dialogue of Plato that concerns the final words of Socrates. The discussion revolves around a proposal by Socrates’s associates to defend his views of the afterlife and the immortality of the soul, followed by a counter argument by a Pythagorean and a final rebuttal by Socrates. In another essay titled “The Philosophy of Creation,” he argues that “reason” itself is nonsensical in the deterministic paradigm of Darwinian naturalism and that the crusaders of modern empiricism are committed adherents of the holy inquisition of scientism.
