What is metaphysics?


#1

Is this a specific or recognized branch of science? Is this science’s attempt to explain the supernatural? Does this “prove” God’s existence? Thanks for your help!

Metaphysics is that branch of philosophy that studies first principles and has as its object of study, being itself. For more, see:[LIST]
