Summary/Abstract: Motru’s ontological system, which might be regarded in terms of a “neutral monism”, was intended to reconcile the general idea of Kant's apriorism with some of the results reached by physics and psychology in the early decades of the 20th century. I will argue that Motru’s hypothesis, although labelled by him as “realism”, could be described as a “phenomenal scientistic ontology” based on an understanding of metaphysics as a science of everything.
