... offers both an excellent entry into [Sallis’s] thought and a strong example of where the tasks of philosophy may yet be found at the closure of metaphysics." —American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly

Since Hegel, philosophers have declared repeatedly that metaphysics is at an end. What exactly does the end, or closure, of metaphysics mean, and what are the implications of this view? In his second edition, John Sallis has expanded this major work, contributing to current debates in continental philosophy.
