The Way Things are: Basic Readings in Metaphysics

Front Cover
McGraw-Hill, 1998 - Philosophy - 326 pages
This anthology of classic and contemporary readings is designed for an imtermediate or advanced metaphysics course. The material addresses all major areas of metaphysical inquiry: personal identity and responsibility, free will and determinism, change and time, existence and nonexistence, the mind-body problem, and causal determinism and free will. A number of "new" papers, notably by McGinn, Markosian, Chandler, Cartwright, Van Cleeve, Fischer, and Schoemaker, do not appear in other metaphysics anthologies.
