What is metaphysics?

It isn’t easy to provide a simple definition of Metaphysics; partly due to the conflicting definitions from rival schools of philosophy (from Plato to Confucius to David Hume) but mostly due to the fact that Metaphysics attempts to answer fundamental questions about the nature of the universe, the nature of being and human’s place in the universe.

In this podcast, Adrian Moore, Professor of Philosophy at St Hugh’s College, Oxford, introduces the field of Metaphysics, it’s origins and explores some of the enduring Metaphysical questions.
