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.

Bubner I 149
Knowledge/Metaphysics/Aristotle/Bubner: to know truly and definitively requires the certainty that the knowledge has come to its full extent, by even recognizing that which is already existing knowledge. Such security cannot be determined from outside, it must be found in the knowledge itself.
Def Metaphysics/Aristotle/Bubner: is then the search for the knowledge that helps our entire knowledge to become independent from our own powers.
