Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy concerned with the fundamental nature of reality.  It draws its name from from the Greek meta ta phusika, meaning literally 'beyond physics', because the book comes after the Physics in the order assigned by an editor of Aristotle's works, Andronicus of Rhodes, about the year A.D. 70. The term metaphysics was unknown to Aristotle, and he variously called this branch of philosophy "first science", "wisdom" theological science" (theologikê) and "first philosophy" (prôtê philosophia) Metaphysics includes topics such as philosophy of mind, identity, philosophy of space and time (including cosmogeny), free will, and the difference between necessity and possibility.
