PostSubject: Metaphysics   Mon Dec 06, 2010 7:04 am

Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world,[1] although the term is not easily defined.[2] Traditionally, metaphysics attempts to answer two basic questions in the broadest possible terms:

1. "What is there?" and
2. "What is it like?"[3]

A person who studies metaphysics would be called either a metaphysicist[4] or a metaphysician.[5] The metaphysician attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people understand the world, including existence, the definition of Object (philosophy), Property (philosophy), space, time, causality, and possibility.

A central branch of metaphysics is ontology, the investigation into how each category of being in the world relates to each another.
