    Unified Philosophy: Interdisciplinary Metaphysics, Cyberethics, and Liberal Arts presents an integrated vision of metaphysics, ethics, and philosophy and posits that philosophy is a form of theoretical and applied metaphysics. This integration forms the foundation of general education, or what is considered to be liberal arts and sciences. The book shows how introductory philosophy courses can be adapted for freshman and faculty orientation to 2 and 4 year colleges, and universities, and senior reorientations revising traditional capstones.

    The book opens with an outline of the general theory of metaphysics. Having identified four options for subject-object relations, the book then applies these to examinations of linguistics, hermeneutics, determinism, the ethics of economics as cyberethics and cybereconomics, and the social sciences. The books also dissects "lifeworld" into "object" and "methodological" or "approach" lifeworld and shows through semantics that human factors engineering as probably identified with metaphysics as theoretical and applied. Other topics for intellectual discourse include public versus private property, God, empirical and rational knowledge, and technology's relation to science and art.

    The second edition features improved organization of sections within chapters based upon classroom testing, as well as substantial changes and updates to the content across all chapters.

    Written in recognition of ethics and metaphysics as fundamental components of philosophy and the quest for wisdom, Unified Philosophy is a thought-provoking text for students of theology, ethics, and engineering. With its focus on philosophy as an integral part of liberal arts and sciences, it is also an excellent supplement for courses in economics, anthropology, and the arts.
    The Third Edition will be published Spring 2021. ISBN: 978-1-5165-9791-8
