On Existence, Being and Reality from the viewpoint of categorial-systematic philosophy

Author(s): Alexandru Surdu
Subject(s): Philosophy

Keywords: Subsistence; Immediate Existence; Being; Reality; Real Existence

Summary/Abstract: There is a kind of processuality suggesting an evolutionary relationship between the five central categories: Subsistence, Immediate Existence, Being, Reality and Real Existence. Apparently, subsistence turns into Existence, the latter turns into Being, and then into Reality and Real Existence. Philosophy itself is categorially defined as a “shift” from the first one to the last one – which is appropriate, except that “transition” means not transformation. The etymological origin of the five concepts once elucidated, the present essay identifies some adverse consequences of the confusion between Immediate and Real Existence, and outlines at the same time a critique of Real Existence.
