Publisher's Description

A systematic overview of modern metaphysics, A Survey of Metaphysics covers all of the most important topics in the field. It adopts the fairly traditional conception of metaphysics as a subject that deals with the deepest questions that can be raised concerning the fundamental structure of reality as a whole. The book is divided into six main sections that address the following themes: identity and change, necessity and essence, causation, agency and events, space and time, and universals and particulars. It focuses on contemporary views and issues throughout, rather than on the history of metaphysics.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a great book. It will immediately become--and will remain forsome time--one of the two or three books that are seriously considered forany metaphysics course that uses a textbook. "--Professor Trenton Merricks, University of Virginia, US

"This book provides excellent coverage for typical courses in metaphysics...Lowe has avoided unnecessary technicalities and jargon; the writing is both clear and accessible to typical philosophy undergraduates. He has done a remarkable job on this score."--Professor Gary Rosenkrantz, University of North Carolina, Greenboro
