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.

Def quietism / Wright: the view that a significant metaphysical debate is impossible.
One version has it that realistic and anti-realistic tendencies pursue the confused desire to get out of your own skin. Wrong "divine point of view", from which the claim the objectivity of a linguistic practice can be examined. (Attributed to Wittgenstein, but this is disputed).
