Author Biography

Renyuan Dong works as a senior healthcare consultant based in Tokyo. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in both philosophy and economics, speaks three languages, and boasts of having traveled to over 40 countries.

Most of the ideas presented in his book—Rainstorm of Tomorrow—matured during the author’s collegiate study of philosophy and economics, as well as his professional tenure in healthcare and biology; the shift wrought a cross-disciplinary mode of thinking, illuminating connections and contradictions that defy the boundaries of each subject. Through his travels, the author found persistent proofs of and supplements to his existing philosophical belief transcendent of the confines of any one culture. The multinational identity of the author may help usher in an occasion for West to meet East in the philosophy of science.

Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite

The advancement and specialization of our respective fields, whether in science or art, have confined us to the scholastic dogmas of our discipline so that we fall short of achieving an all-encompassing grasp of the nature of our being. In Rainstorm of Tomorrow: The Ever-Flowing Banquet of Philosophy, Renyuan Dong creates a tapestry from the different threads of disciplines which he calls the philosophy of science. He delves into the core themes of art, science, and ethics to arrive at objectivity and to challenge your existing understanding of the commonly accepted philosophical beliefs and make you re-examine your position. Like most classical and contemporary philosophers who use figurative tales to illustrate a discourse, he introduces you to a fascinating metaphor of a tree growing into the soil with its roots buried in the air, to examine our perceptions of nature and reality.

Philosophers have grappled with metaphysical and ontological questions for centuries, and such questions have become a topic for debate in contemporary thinking. Rainstorm of Tomorrow addresses some of these questions that weren’t answered as we hold to our “position as human beings,” in the sense that philosophy welcomes questions but evades answers. Renyuan Dong elucidates refreshing insights on some of philosophy’s most vexing questions and critiques them by highlighting the mind-body debate and whether or not determinism has any role in guiding causality. An intellectual’s work that will help drive us forward, the lucid discourse and insightful examples will hopefully set us free from the limiting comprehension of human wisdom that imprisons most of us.
