Metaphysics Definition

Metaphysics studies things that appear real; in comparison with invisible phenomena, perceptions, thoughts, and awareness. Metaphysics is usually seen today as a notion of the new age and a body of understanding encompassing spiritual and psychological issues.

Initially, a catalog classification of the works of Aristotle metaphysics showed what information was in his library after the section about physics. It was misinterpreted as the study of what was “beyond the physical” in Western philosophy. With time, metaphysics grew into a division of science that studies what can easily be seen as realism and what can’t be seen but has been proven through experimentation to exist.
