Keywords: Being, Non-Being, Object, Meinong, Metaphysics.
Meinong’s thought continually lends itself to alternative solutions, to a critical rethinking of the concepts he developed and to comparison both with the doctrines of other thinkers, and the ideas of his disciples. The essays presented in this issue place his thinking in dialogue with the major figures in the history of philosophy, thinkers as various as Plato and Aristotle, Avicenna, Suárez, Clauberg, Hume and Kant, who appear as ideal interlocutors in order to comprehend in depth the significance of Meinongian object theory. The purpose underlying these studies is also to illustrate how features and problems of Gegenstandstheorie retain a vital relevance for contemporary philosophy
