Psychology as a Part of Metaphysics

Probably everyone has an opinion about metaphysics, but nobody knows the exact meaning of it. In addition, metaphysics suffers the destiny and indignity of being condemned by almost all, such that there is near-overall agreement on the need for psychology to be emancipated from it. This is probably valid, but what is even more important is to clarify why psychology has to be released. And this requires an understanding of the relationship psychology has with metaphysics (whatever it is!), and also of what psychology was supposed to be all about historically.
