Michael Stuart Kelly Posted August 21, 2007 Author Share Posted August 21, 2007 Bob,We mean different things when we use the term "metaphysics." I refer to a category of human knowledge, which can extend back to primitive religions. You refer to the specific thoughts of this or that person, probably starting with the ancient Greek philosophers.It's a good thing I do not use your standard to categorize science. We might get stuck starting in the middle ages or something that way and even imagine that ancient civilizations (like Egypt) had no science at all.Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
