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.

"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.

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.
