Trenton Merrick’s Review

In “Coming to Understanding”, Ammonius seeks to answer certain questions, questions which science cannot possibly answer. By offering answers to these questions, he hopes to provide a positive contribution to extra-scientific inquiry in general, and to traditional metaphysics in particular. These interrelated questions include:

Why is Being exemplified?
What is the structure of Being?
Why is Being intelligible?
What is the purpose, if any, of the exemplification of Being in individual beings?
