GILBERT, PAUL // Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy; Spring2011, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p29
The word 'ontology' has no meaning outside the context in which it was created. When it was invented, at the beginning of the seventeenth century, the word 'metaphysics' already existed. So the creation of 'ontology' had to express a distance with respect to tradition. 'Metaphysics' had its...

- After Hume.
Porter Groff, Ruth // Journal of Critical Realism; Aug2014, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p422
Analytic metaphysics has taken a sharp turn away from Hume. Almost all at once, it seems, it has become acceptable - perhaps even fashionable - to believe in real causal powers. This is welcome news for those formerly lone metaphysicians who thought all along that Hume was wrong, but it is also...
