The Transformation of Metaphysics in M.K. Mamardashvili’s Creativity

Cover Page


The article analyzes the transformation of metaphysics in the works by Merab. K. Mamardashvili. It is noted that he presented philosophy as philosophizing — spiritual knowledge. The author clarifies how Mamardashvili understands Kant’s transcendental philosophy, Husserl’s phenomenology, and Heidegger’s fundamental-existential ontology. In Mamardashvili’s works, metaphysics is revealed not as an explanation of the world but as a creative transcending action that shapes man as a moral creature.
