Abstract

The article shows how Berger (1924-2016) in the 70ties and 80ties developped his metaphysics of Being, starting from an Aristotelian perspective profoundly influenced by Aquinas, in harsh opposition to Platonic essentialism and in intense discussion with contemporary hermeneutic philosophy.
