Abstract

The aim of the present essay is to analyze the meaning of metaphysics as understood by two philosophical giants, Heidegger and Mullā Ṣadrā. After a thorough analysis of their respective ontologies, it will be argued that although aspects of their treatment of the question of being bear interesting similarities, their basic approaches to the problem differ significantly, thereby calling into question the usefulness of the now-common practice of bringing their ontologies into comparative conversation.
