Metaphysics College - International College of Metaphysical Theology

Metaphysics College - International College of Metaphysical Theology

A course of study in metaphysics is a fascinating exploration of our view of reality. Most traditional colleges focus on the study of classical metaphysics, reading from such authors as Dennett, Gould, Leslie, Nagel, for example. In my studies in metaphysics at Harvard University, the approach was more on the scientific side of metaphysics - in other words, greater emphasis on the "physics" and less stress on the "meta". This focus is much like that of some physicists today with the verbal expanation of more exotic theories.

There is also another approach to metaphysics today, which focuses more on the role of universal energy - and the interconnectedness of all things in a more "spiritual" way. Not spiritual in the way of most organized religions of today - but rather, more in the Buddhist and Hindu tradition of Universal Consciousness.

There are colleges out there that do focus on the latter approach that have great programs. Two in particular are the University of Metaphysics / University of Sedona - - and the International College of Metaphysical Theology -

Both schools offer legitimate alternative degree programs. For example, the ICMT program operates under the Washington State Board of Ed.guidelines for Religious-Exempt Colleges.

If your passion is in this area of metaphysical study, research and work, then take a look at these programs, do a little research and get started.
