About This Course

All philosophy starts with metaphysics in that some presumptions about the nature of what exists must be made before any claim about what does exist can be put forth. The effort to determine the essences behind the appearances that inspire communication or, the medium of expression (the mind, the body, consciousness, language etc.) that makes communication possible gave rise to metaphysics, or theories about the nature of existence.
