Keywords:Aristotle, Metaphysics, truth, human knowledge, theoretical philosophy, nature, causal order
In Metaphysics α.1, Aristotle presents a general image of human knowledge, describing its limits, conditions and historical realisation. This image serves as a background for defining the nature of the first philosophy, i.e. metaphysics, noting its essential relationship to truth and the causal order of the world.
