[ Also see Logic Philosophy Science Sophistry Speculation Theology Theories ]

Metaphysics is the attempt of the mind to rise above the mind.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Characteristics

Metaphysics,--the science which determines what can and what cannot be known of being and the laws of being.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The fame of Locke is visibly on the decline; the speculations of Malebranche are scarcely heard of in France; and Kant, the greatest metaphysical name on the Continent, sways a doubtful sceptre amidst a host of opponents.
      - Robert Hall

Metaphysics, in whatever latitude the term be taken, is a science, or complement of sciences, exclusively occupied with mind.
      - Sir William Hamilton (3)

A metaphysician is one who, when you remark that twice two makes four, demands to know what you mean by twice, what you mean by two, what by makes, and what by four.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

All parts of knowledge have their origin in metaphysics.
      - Thomas De Quincey ("The Opium Eater")

Ethical metaphysics is fundamentally an attempt, however disguised, to give legislative force to our own wishes.
      - Bertrand Arthur William Russell
