“This is an outstanding book. As a contemporary introduction to the problems of metaphysics there is nothing like it. Its combination of classical perspective and awareness of the contemporary situation is unique. I myself would welcome having it as a teaching tool.” ― Nicholas Rescher, author of Process Metaphysics
“As an elenchic defense of metaphysics, Metaphysics and Its Task is superb.” ― Review of Metaphysics
“Gracia not only defends metaphysics, which has come under much criticism in the twentieth century, but shows it to be the fundamental philosophical enterprise at the base of all human understanding. I learned a good bit from the book and want to study it more closely.” ― Eugene Long, University of South Carolina
