What do we know about ourselves?
Do we know what we are, who we are, how we find ourselves in the world, what we live for? Today, we know more about the world and the cosmos than about ourselves. All spheres of cognition have been interested in man for millenniums. Art and literature, philosophy and metaphysics, religion and science have made great contributions to the library of the knowledge of man. This shows that man is a very special kind of being in the world.
We are told that modern science will resolve all the riddles and existing obstacles of man. Have there been any achievements that have brought full understanding to man’s nature through the basis of phenomena known by scientific methods? Is there any hope that this understandings will point to the false antinomy between revelation and reason, faith and knowledge, grace and nature, good and evil, courage and anxiety of man? Is any other approach legitimate?
We journey on a new quest for the rediscovery of man. It endeavors to show that there is no possibility of achieving an understanding of man’s total nature on the basis of phenomena known by science, philosophy, and religion. Man will remain the greatest mystery in the world now and forever. However, this project will nonetheless establish an effort to define man’s search for the essence of being in order that he may find his life purpose and goals.
