Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that deals with answering questions about the nature of truth and knowledge. People who study metaphysics try to determine if there are any absolute truths, if we can ever know something entirely, and how our perceived senses relate to the "real world."
"After" That's what it meant in ancient Greek. The word "metaphysics" got its name because in the list of Aristotle's books, the Metaphysics was the book that came right after the Physics. However, the word became enormously popular as the philosophy of Aristotle became popular in the Middle Ages and people started to imagine that the prefix "meta" had to do with the relation of the content of the Metaphysics, as opposed to that of the Physics and people started to use it to mean the overarching or underlying principles behind something (as the Metaphysics dealt with the underlying principles of Physics). Thus in newly-formed words like metacognition, the prefix is used to mean "underlying principles of".
The two main questions Metaphysics tries to answers is"What is there?""What is it like?"metaphysics attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people understand the world, such as existance,objects and the properties of space and time

The doctrines and teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) do not correlate with those of metaphysics. That is, you could not honestly believe in both metaphysics and Mormonism. That being said, Mormons are not 'against' metaphysics. It is a fundamental belief of Mormons that all people should have the freedom to believe and worship as they choose. Mormons recognize metaphysics as a legitimate belief system, just one which they don't personally believe in. Mormons are welcome to study and learn about metaphysics if it interests them.
