In ""Aims: A Brief Metaphysics for Today"", James W. Felt turns his attention to combining elements of Thomas Aquinas' metaphysics, especially its deep ontology, with Alfred North Whitehead's process philosophy to arrive at a new possibility for metaphysics. In his distinctive style, Felt concisely pulls together the strands of epistemology, ontology, and teleology, synthesizing these elements into his own ""process-enriched Thomism."" Aims does not simply discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each philosopher's position, but blends the two into a cohesive argument based on principles derived from immediate experience. Felt arrives at what he calls a ""White-headian-type solution,"" appealing to his original concept of the ""essential aim"" as necessary for understanding our existence in a coherent yet unique world. This concise, finely crafted discussion provides a throughly teleological, value-centered approach to metaphysics. ""Aims"", an experiment in constructive metaphysics, is a thorough and insightful project in modern philosophy. It will appeal to philosophers and students of philosophy interested in enriching their knowledge of contemporary conceptions of metaphysics.
