With this in mind, we can distinguish metaphysics’ question from Heidegger’s meta-metaphysical question. Metaphysics takes things (whatever is real, whatever “has being”)97 as its material object; and then asks about what it is that makes them be real. In the traditional reading of Aristotle’s metaphysics (and here I focus on its ontological moment and prescind from its theological moment), that inquiry unfolds as follows. 1. The material object that metaphysics takes up is things, whatever is real, whatever “has being” (τὸ ὄν).

Experiencing the rare and momentary collapse of all our meaning-giving worlds lets us see the utter groundlessness—the “absurdity”—of ex-sistence as the clearing-for-intelligibility. This experience throws us back (cf. abweisen) into our ineluctable engagement with things in their intelligibility, but now with an awareness of what is at stake and with the possibility of assuming authorship of our own groundless and mortal lives.

Chapter 1 14 2. 96 3. Finally, the Erfragtes or outcome is a formal indication of the answer the inquirer hopes to obtain by bringing the formal focus to bear on the material object.
