This volume re-examines some of the major themes at the intersection of traditional and contemporary metaphysics. The book uses as a point of departure Francisco Suárez’s Metaphysical Disputations published in 1597. Minimalist metaphysics in empiricist/pragmatist clothing have today become mainstream in analytic philosophy. Independently of this development, the progress of scholarship in ancient and medieval philosophy makes clear that traditional forms of metaphysics have affinities with some of the streams in contemporary analytic metaphysics. The book brings together leading contemporary metaphysicians to investigate the viability of a neo-Aristotelian metaphysics.

Review:

"This impressive collection of papers makes an important contribution to the tradition of neo-Aristotelian metaphysics. The book provides a good starting point for those interested in the tradition and is crucial reading for those working in it. The diversity of topics discussed and the historical background provided by the authors makes the collection comprehensive and accessible for readers from different traditions. It will be of interest to anyone who wants to stay up-to-date with contemporary analytic metaphysics and the increasingly popular neo-Aristotelian approach." --Tuomas E. Tahko, University of Helsinki, Finland

"This book is a valuable and distinguished contribution to an important body of contemporary work in Neo-Aristotelian metaphysics, providing a distinguished and useful resource for scholars." -- Gary Rosenkrantz, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA

"Themes in contemporary metaphysics that bear similarity to the interests, commitments, positions and general approaches found in Aristotle and the scholastic tradition are of current interest, and this volume is a welcome addition to such recent work" -- Phil Corkum, Notre Dame Philosophical Review
