Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Metaphysics: is a theory that has the claim to ask questions and provide answers beyond our available knowledge. It is objected that even for asking questions, a knowledge of the meanings of the words used is required. This knowledge is not given when experiences or at least theories using these terms are not available. See also essentialism, metaphysical possibility.

Metaphysics/Heidegger: Christianity and nihilism do not differ in their orientation to God. Metaphysics interprets the presence into the absence. Nietzsche's death of God brings the West into the situation of being able to put an end to metaphysics.

HeideggerVsMetaphysics: "because not asking for being".
Cardorff II 86
Metaphysics/Heidegger: all attempts, being as remaining, always-equality, availability, presence, i.e. thinking as an independent presence, belong to metaphysics for Heidegger. Likewise, eternal recurrence of the same, Hegel's absolute mind, etc.
