In this project, we aim to investigate the nature of metaphysical explanation. This central notion in metaphysics is underexplored in its own right. By considering metaphysical explanation by analogy with more familiar forms of explanation, we hope both to elucidate the notion, to justify its continued use in metaphysics and elsewhere, and to shed new light on questions about fundamentality, grounding, truthmaking, and explanation generally.
