The review examines in detail the analytical-semiotic approach presented in the book to solve the metaphysical problems of philosophy, such as the essence, truth, simplicity, clarity, and clarity of expressions. The proposed approach can eliminate from the philosophical discourse irrational statements that are incomprehensible and meaningless. This approach also eliminates from philosophy the so-called “pseudo-problems” that arise from language abuses. The logical-semiotic approach is not a panacea and cannot solve metaphysical problems once and for all, but that does not mean that it is not effective. Its effectiveness is that it helps set the boundaries of language, beyond which it formulates meaningless verbalisms. The reviewed book will also be useful for those scholars who seek careful and concrete researches in the field of metaphysics. Such researches are based on the logical-semiotic approach of analytical philosophy.
