About this title


Supervenience is one of the hot "discoveries" of recent analytic philosophy, and this collection of new essays on the topic represents a "state of the art" examination of it and its application to major areas of philosophy. Hitherto a serious student had to track down scattered articles in journals on the subject. Now that reader can find some of the finest philosophers writing on this topic in a comprehensive, integrated anthology.

From the Back Cover:

Supervenience is one of the hot "discoveries" of recent analytic philosophy. The interest in supervenience has much to do with the flexibility of the concept. To say that x supervenes on y indicates a degree of dependence without committing one to the view that x can be reduced to y. Thus, supervenience is a relationship that has the potential of replacing the traditional notion of dependence, while performing at least part of the function reductive relationships were supposed to fulfill. Moreover, since it is a topic-neutral concept, the range of applicability of supervenience extends to all the major areas of philosophy.
