9780198752530: A Survey of Metaphysics

A systematic overview of modern metaphysics, A Survey of Metaphysics covers all of the most important topics in the field. It adopts the fairly traditional conception of metaphysics as a subject that deals with the deepest questions that can be raised concerning the fundamental structure of reality as a whole. The book is divided into six main sections that address the following themes: identity and change, necessity and essence, causation, agency and events, space and time, and universals and particulars. It focuses on contemporary views and issues throughout, rather than on the history of metaphysics.

About the Author:


E.J. Lowe is Professor of Philosophy at University of Durham

Review:


"This is a great book. It will immediately become--and will remain forsome time--one of the two or three books that are seriously considered forany metaphysics course that uses a textbook. "--Professor Trenton Merricks, University of Virginia, US


"This book provides excellent coverage for typical courses in metaphysics...Lowe has avoided unnecessary technicalities and jargon; the writing is both clear and accessible to typical philosophy undergraduates. He has done a remarkable job on this score."--Professor Gary Rosenkrantz, University of North Carolina, Greenboro

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A Survey of Metaphysics provides a systematic overview of modern metaphysics, covering all of the most important topics likely to be encountered on a metaphysics course. The conception of metaphysics underlying the book is the fairly traditional and widely-shared one that metaphysics deals with the deepest questions that can be raised concerning the fundamental structure of reality as a whole. The book is divided into six main parts, each relatively self-contained, focusing in turn on the following major themes: identity and change, necessity and essence, causation, agency and events, space and time, and universals and particulars. In an introductory chapter, the conception of metaphysics underlying the book is explained and defended against the many and varied opponents of metaphysics those students are likely to encounter. While the book makes reference when necessary to the history of metaphysics, its emphasis is on contemporary views and issues. The author s approach is not narrowly partisan, but avoids bland neutrality in matters of controversy. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780198752530
