Abstract:

In this paper/presentation, we shall continue our exploration of Bahá'í ontology that we began in "Bahá'í Ontology: An Initial Reconnaissance." We shall examine, among other things, issues related to becoming and change; substance, soul, self and identity; the nature of being and nothingness; time; the one and the many; the nature of 'things'; what makes something 'real'; social ontology and dialectic; and the order of knowledge and the order of being. On some of these issues we shall draw comparisons with other systems of thought such as are found in Buddhism and the works of Hegel.
