Hey you smart people, help me out. I've come across this word "ontology" a few times now, and I've looked it up and studied it a little, but I simply can't make it stick. I can't make it work for me. It feels useless and confusing.
I'm counting on you Justin, Mr. Philosophy major, to sell me on this word. When and why should I use it?
"The study of the nature of existence." Don't we have clearer, more common words for this? Isn't this science?
