      It was a problem that David Hume arrived at that gave Kant his insights into epistemology. Called Hume’s Fork it basically says with regard to epistemology we have two options. We can either have certainty in knowledge but it won't be about sense. Wolff contrasted ontology, or general metaphysics, which applied to all things, with special metaphysical theories such as those of the soul, of bodies, or of God. Wolff claimed that ontology was an a priori discipline that could reveal the essences of things, a view strongly criticized later in the 18th century by David Hume and Immanuel Kant.
