In Constructics: A Methodology of Theory Construction, author Shokichi Uto introduces a systematic methodology, "Constructics," that enables individuals to create, construct, and effectively establish their own philosophical theory. This theory could be defined as the most fundamental idea, or the logical starting point in an organized body of knowledge, unique to each individual. Many become frustrated when creating and implementing their own philosophical viewpoints. This book successfully tempers this frustration by presenting a clear guide towards the actualization of personal philosophical methods. It will be of interest to philosophy students, professors, or any other professionals or individuals who have interest in creating and presenting their own philosophical theories.
