Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"What is Metaphysics?"

At the risk of bringing us back to Heidegger, I have to point out that although the Ancient Greeks did "start" metaphysics, their precursors had already killed metaphysics before they started it. At least according to Heidegger, both Heraclitus and Parmenides showed the inherent errors of metaphysical thinking prior to its coming into being in formal practice.

Continental philosophy, especially French, over the last 50 odd years has been keenly interested in dismantling the whole 2,500 year old edifice of metaphysical thought.
