[Autom. eng. transl.] If we consider the world panorama of ontology manuals in our day we have the impression of being confronted by two parallel lines which, by definition, never meet. On the one hand, a series of manuals from the area of the so-called "analytical ontology", used above all in Anglo-Saxon universities, and on the other those in the Aristotelian-Thomistic area, adopted in pontifical and Catholic universities. While dealing with the same theme - being, existence, essence, the senses of being, analogy etc. - the two traditions of thought manifest a sovereign mutual ignorance and a sterile tendency to self-ghettoization. The work aims to overcome this problem by building a bridge between the two types of ontology. In particular, starting from a classical division of the subject, the volume provides to show the topicality of every single problem within those contemporary debates of metaphysics in English, revived following the so-called "ontological turn" of the contemporary philosophy.
