On Metaphysical Propositions

Philosophy, unlike science and mathematics, is not fully rational and cannot be developed on purely empirical evidence. All philosophies begin with the assumption of certain basic facts which cannot be proved or disproved. These basic facts are mostly the metaphysical presuppositions (also known as axioms) which can be based on theological or atheistic rationalizations. Without such presuppositions or axioms, no philosophy is possible.
