Alexius Meinong (1853-1920) nimmt in der Geschichte der Ontologie eine ausgezeichnete Stellung ein. Er war der erste Philosoph, der in systematischer Weise eine quasi-ontologische Disziplin entwickelte, die im Vergleich zu der Disziplin, die man traditionell Metaphysik oder Ontologie nennt, viel allgemeiner sein sollte. Die Metaphysik untersucht das Seiende als Seiendes, und die seienden Entit ten bilden - so die These Meinongs - nur ein kleines Fragment dessen, was man unter dem Namen "Gegenstandstheorie" untersuchen kann. Die Gegenst nde als solche (die "reinen" Gegenst nde) sind, wie Meinong sagt, "au erseiend," was bedeutet, dass sie bez glich ihres Seins bzw. Nicht-Seins neutral sein sollen. In diesem Buch wird die so verstandene Gegenstandstheorie in ihrer historischen Entwicklung im Zusammenhang mit Meinongs Intentionalit tstheorie untersucht, denn der wahre Grund, warum Meinong einen Bereich der au erseienden Gegenst nde berhaupt postulierte, ist nicht anders als die philosophischen R tsel, auf die man in der Intentionalit tstheorie st t.

The thought of Alexius Meinong (1853-1920) has a distinguished position within the conceptual space of ontology. He was the first philosopher who tried systematically to develop a quasi-ontological discipline which was intended to be much more general than the metaphysics in the traditional sense. Metaphysics investigates being qua being; and this constitutes only a small part of the domain of the theory of objects (Gegenstandstheorie) as Meinong conceived of it. For - so reads one of Meinong's most frequently cited theses - the objects considered purely qua objects are neutral concerning their being or non-being. In this book Meinong's theory of objects is presented in its historical development and investigated within the context of his theory of intentionality. This connection is justified because the real motivation behind Meinong's introduction of entities "beyond being and non being" lies in the philosophical puzzles of the theory of intentionality.
