Toward a Metaphysics of Culture offers an preliminary, minimum, and unique research of the concept that of uniquely enlanguaged cultures of the human international and of the particular metaphysical positive aspects of no matter what belongs to the issues of that global: preeminently, people, language, activities, works of art, items, background, practices, associations, and norms. Emphasis is put on the artifactual and hybrid nature of people, naturalistic and post-Darwinian evolutionary issues, and the bearing of the account on quite a number disputed inquiries mostly established at the dating among actual nature and human tradition and among the common and human sciences. The schema provided lays a starting place for a more in-depth research of the human brain, cognition, interpretation, nomologicality, normativity, intentionality, realism, and similar concerns. The significant thesis advances the heterodox thought, congruent with post-Darwinian stories in paleoanthropology, that the human individual is a average artifact, a useful rework of the primate participants of Homo sapiens, when it comes to a complexly intertwined organic and encultured evolution, essentially depending on the discovery, transmission, and mastery of precise language and the unconventional hybrid skills that that makes attainable. The emergence of individuals is taken to be the obverse aspect of the mastery of language itself.
