Is the Study of Metaphysics Futile and Overly Vague?

No for two reasons, at least. First, axioms – the fundamental truths, the unquestioned assumptions that serve us in everyday life and as ultimate arguments for science – must be questioned. Secondly, knowledge and scientific evidence in particular is being increasingly fragmented, compartmentalized. Truths, discovered and proven in one research or field of science, do not get recognized as having material impact on others and being parts of a bigger and consistent worldview. The job of reflecting on and assimilating these diverse and seemingly unrelated bodies of knowledge appears to be left unattended. This has consequences we may wish to avoid.
