The present and future of metaphysics in the 21st century: in the book edited by Enrique Romerales some world-class metaphysical philosophers confront each other and converse with us about what metaphysics is today. Analytical and continental philosophers show some considerations on the general and particular topics of metaphysics: e.g. what is the relationship between metaphysics and ontology? What advances can there be in reflection of metaphysics? The answers are very different but all the authors share the conviction that metaphysics is inescapable: the center of philosophical thought is metaphysics. The papers contained in the book offer the chance to examine and reflect upon such matters as: hermeneutical ontology, allism and noneism, metaphysical retractatio, topology etc.
