agree with what others posted. Also, the "dilemma" seems decidedly uncomplicated. The dude couldn't reconcile two systems, one of which was based on his own superstitions, so he decided not to. Big deal. I'm only saying that because your massive breakthrough just comes across as anti-climactic. I think you should start over, dig deeper and leave out the philosophy name-dropping. You are a good writer though. very smooth, nothing awkward besides the content.

This is pedantic, but I think the word you want is "composed" or "constituted."
As for the broader essay--I thought there was too much philosophy and not enough you. I can't think of a way to fix that particular problem, so if I were you, I'd probably scrap it and try to think of something new.
