In recent years analytic philosophy has shown a growing interest in ontology and metaphysics, through a path that has led to a clearer awareness of methods and aims of these disciplines. Today the fact that ontology and metaphysics fulfill the aims of determining what there is and why this is the case is generally accepted, but the meta-theoretical debate about their legitimacy, the way they relate to different scientific disciplines and, especially, their implications in other areas of research (primarily in logic and in philosophy of mind) are more controversial. Jonathan Lowe, metaphysician, ontologist and philosopher of mind, is a very active author in this debate. The purpose of these pages is to analyze and to discuss his main theses in metaphysics and ontology and their impact on philosophy of mind, especially as regards the mind-body relation and the ontological status of the subject.
