Several people have asked me to comment on the remarks about causation made by atheist physicist Sean Carroll during his recent debate with William Lane Craig on the topic of “God and Cosmology.” (You’ll find Craig’s own post-debate remarks here.).) It’s only fair to acknowledge at the outset that Carroll cannot justly be accused of the anti-philosophy one finds in recent remarks by. The term metaphysics is derived from the Greek Ta Meta ta Physkia which means “the books after the books on nature.” When a librarian was cataloging Aristotle’s works, he did not have a title for the material he wanted to shelve after the material called “nature” (Physkia) — so he called it “after nature.” Originally, this wasn’t even a subject at all — it was a collection.
This book, the first systematic student introduction dedicated to metametaphysics, discusses the nature of metaphysics - its methodology, epistemology, ontology and our access to metaphysical knowledge. It provides students with a firm grounding in the basics of metametaphysics, covering a broad range of topics in metaontology such as existence. 4 Kant and the Metaphysics of Causality It is at this point that Immanuel Kant enters the standard story, claim-ing to have a reply both to the rationalists’ (overly) ambitious claims to knowledge of God, freedom, and the immortality of the soul and to Hume’s skeptical doubts about causality.

This is a book about Kant's views on causality as understood in their proper historical context. Specifically, Eric Watkins argues that a grasp of Leibnizian and anti-Leibnizian thought in 18th century Germany helps one to see how the Critical Kant argued for causal principles that have both metaphysical and epistemological by: That a cause happens before its effect has been a core, and often unquestioned, part of how we describe causality.
Research across disciplines shows that the relationship is much more complex than that. This book explores what that means for both the metaphysics and epistemology of causes - what they are and how we can find them.5/5(1). Kant and the Metaphysics of Causality book.

ABSTRACT. Philosophical theories are always answers to questions raised within certain historical contexts, which involve the common presuppositions of an era. Metaphysics (Greek: τὰ μετὰ τὰ φυσικά; Latin: Metaphysica, lit: "the beyond the physical") is one of the principal works of Aristotle and the first major work of the branch of philosophy with the same name.
The principal subject is "being qua being," or being insofar as it is being. It examines what can be asserted about any being insofar as it is and not because of any. Part 1 " "THE investigation of the truth is in one way hard, in another easy. An indication of this is found in the fact that no one is able to attain the truth adequately, while, on the other hand, we do not collectively fail, but every one says something true about the nature of things, and while individually we contribute little or nothing to the truth, by the union of all a considerable.Causality.
Causality is the Law of Identity applied over time. It is the identity of actions. An action requires an entity. It presupposes an entity. Without an entity, action is meaningless. There are no "floating" actions that aren't actions of an entity. Action is a change in the identity of an entity.METAPHYSICS – AN OVERVIEW Basic Concepts, Methods, Issues, Questions, and Arguments Topic I.
