Metaphysics/Ontology

Metaphysics and Ontology terms

TermDefinition
Idealism The ontological view that, ultimately, every existing thing can be shown to be spiritual or mental.
Materialism The ontological view that, in the analysis, all phenomena can be demonstrated to be material in nature and that mental and spiritual phenomena either nonexistent, or have no existence independent of matter.
Dualism The ontological view that reality is composed of two kinds of beings, usually minds and bodies.
Determinism The view that every event that occurs, occurs necessarily. There is no randomness in reality, rather, all is law governed.
Mysticism The view that reality reveals its true nature only in a super-rational ecstatic vision.
Libertarians A libertarian claims people are not forced to act as they do ; they are always free to behave differently. They believe in free will.
Monism The ontological view that only one entity exists or that only one kind of entity exists.
Pluralism The ontological view that reality is composed of plurality of beings rather than just of one kind of being or two kinds of beings.
Metaphysics The branch of philosophy that attempts to construct a general, speculative worldview: a complete, systematic account of all reality and experience.
Ontology The branch of philosophy pursuing such questions as, what is real? What is the difference between appearance and reality? What is relation between minds and bodies? Are numbers and concepts real, or are only physical objects real?
