Kurzbeschreibung des Verlags:

What makes philosophy metaphysical? Understood as the search for truth, philosophy has led those seeking it to the question of Being, says Günter Figal. He shows that because this devotion to truth and Being are the heart of metaphysics, it is what makes up philosophy's metaphysical character. Figal embraces this, and, leaving arguments for simple affirmation aside, offers instead a critical discussion of the positions adopted by metaphysical philosophy's founding fathers, Parmenides, Plato and Aristotle. Alongside a phenomenological transformation of the latter's ontology, Figal also sets out why he regards metaphysics as just one philosophical perspective among others, and not as a dominating 'first philosophy'. The outcome is philosophy as a de-centered, non-hierarchical and liberating project.
