This book teaches ontology by analyzing and interpreting the major ontological problems which have existed throughout history and which still engage thinkers and scholars today. The author takes us through many studies, including: the totality of Being of Parmenides and the principle of the oneness of being, thought, and language; the debate between idealism and materialism; the ontological status of the "I" and the Cogito principle; and the antinomy of necessity and freedom. Graduate and undergraduate students of philosophy will benefit from Bar-On's inquiries classical texts and into modern interpretations of these "classics." Seminars on ontology and metaphysics will profit from Bar-On's probing of timeless perplexities which continue to find their way into modern day discussions.
