Book jacket/back: 'Being and Other Realities,' by our greatest living metaphysician, pushes Paul Weiss's philosophy to new subtlety. It moves on two fronts. On one, it further refines the categorial scheme Weiss has been developing over 50 years. On the other, it is a shining example of radical questioning and exploration. This is an important book, especially for philosophers like myself, who believe being is not another reality." --Robert C. Neville, Boston University, Author of Normative Cultures and The Truth of Broken Symbols

In Being And Other Realities, Paul Weiss maintains that "the primary, essential task of philosophy is to provide an account of the primary realities" and "to make evident their primary preconditions, interrelations, and consequences". Accordingly, he subjects persons, humanized realities, nature, and the cosmos to revolutionary examinations and opens up a new inquiry into the nature of the role of mediators. Weiss also provides original proofs for the existence of a primary, necessary reality (Being) and offers a new explanation of the existence of contingencies. At once daring and carefully defended, Being And Other Realities breaks new ground in its treatment of perception, evidence, passages from one domain to another, time, transcendents, and hypotheses. Being And Other Realities is an engaging, reader-accessible addition to any philosophy collection. -- Midwest Book Review
