"The work that follows uses the written word to communicate a philosophically-engendered vision, such approximation to reflective wisdom as I have been able to develop so far. Now if reflective wisdom is what I have been claiming it to be above, then any communication of it by way of writing is at best an attempt, by way of a linguistic-meaning-bearing proxy, to communicate the author's thoughts and claims by first and foremost pointing a reader back into such experience in his/her own life and such reflection upon it as would (so it is hoped) issue in the reader's discovery of what the author is talking from-and-about so that the reader, understanding what is being claimed, will be in the best position to assess the claims’ truth and join, from out of the way he/she can dwell in our common humanity, in dialogue over this matter of the problematic of existence. The consideration of it will fall into two parts. Part I will address the emergence within being of today; Part II will address tomorrow and the task of today as regards the emergence of tomorrow." -- from the Introduction
