This book examines the paradoxical role of anthropocentrism in philosophy. Ethics is generally considered to be about the human good, epistemology about human knowledge, and metaphysical antirealism, unless reinterpreted, claims the world depends on our cognitive capacities. But philosophers do not engage in empirical research, though humans' good and knowledge are empirical matters. And humans are merely inhabitants, not "makers", of the world.
