Only edition (complete despite the pagination) of this dissertation defended at the Augustinian college in Rottenbuch, attempting to provide a survey of metaphysics in one hundred paragraphs. The work explains, among other matters, the scope and purpose of metaphysics, the basis of Aristotelian metaphysics, the divine attributes, the difference between possible and actual entities, the nature of causation, the rational soul, and the properties and philosophical usefulness of angels; as might be expected, the approach is thoroughly scholastic.
