Joseph Milana’s insightful collection of idiosyncratic philosophical essays entitled “On Hope and Knowledge: A Skeptic’s Response and Other Reflections” (published by Archway Publishing) shares Milana’s ruminations on science, religion, knowledge and philosophy, encouraging skeptics and seekers alike to discover their place in the world. The book is available for purchase at:

Appealing to the curious, Milana’s writings explore the purpose of people in the world, through the lenses of philosophy, history of science and ethics. Milana believes that people’s lives are an effort to synthesize various elements together to find their place in the world. Throughout the discussion, Milana works to keep it current while spanning the millennia by connecting with great thinkers of the past. At the same time, he seeks to acknowledge latest advances in fields such as physics, biology and psychology, and connect with common humanity as expressed across the ages.

When asked what he wants readers to gain from his writing, Milana responded with, “To doubt; to avoid easy answers; to see that the world is complicated, that our place unknown but not irreconcilable with hope.”
