Do We Regularly Make a Mistake in Metaphysics?

We should cherish metaphysics for its power to overcome false views and yet we admonish it for its ongoing failure. Is it possible that this is for the embarrassingly simple reason that we usually ignore Aristotle’s definition for a true contradictory pair and so infect our philosophical calculations with errors?

I believe so, and in an essay recently posted I explain why. I wish it was better organised and shorter but it covers the ground and may be decipherable.  It explains, in my opinion, the principle reason for the continuing failure of the western tradition of thought to solve metaphysics.  My apologies for not being able to put it all more clearly.
