Whereas the history of philosophy defines metaphysics as asking the question “What is Being?”’ here is asked, “Where is Being?”  The architectonic, the term for a metaphysical structure, is borrowed from Kant, and in this inquiry is used as an analytical tool called onto-topology in order to investigate the place and structure of ontology within western metaphysics; namely, the chora of Plato, continuum of Aristotle, and the labyrinth of Leibniz.
