Thoroughly updated, the second edition of this highly successful textbook continues to represent the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of canonical readings in metaphysics. In addition to updated material from the first edition, it presents entirely new sections on ontology and the metaphysics of material objects.

  • One of the most comprehensive and authoritative metaphysics anthologies available now updated and expanded
  • Offers the most important contemporary works on the central issues of metaphysics
  • Includes new sections on ontology and the metaphysics of material objects, as well as readings on the topics of fictionalism, fundamentality, tropes, vague identity, temporary intrinsics, stage theory, and composition
  • Surpasses other anthologies in its combination of contributions from leading metaphysicians and a younger generation of "rising–stars"

Review:

Almost since it first came into print, I have used the first edition of Metaphysics: An Anthology in upper level undergraduate metaphysics courses. I also use it whenever I teach a graduate survey of metaphysics. The second edition is not just new, but new and improved. And I intend to use it in future metaphysics courses.

Trenton Merricks, University of Virginia

A thorough compilation of essential readings. Anyone seriously interested in contemporary analytic metaphysics needs to know these pieces. The nicely updated second edition adds papers foundational to the next generation of metaphysical research.

Mark Heller, Syracuse University

The second edition of Metaphysics: An Anthology is a splendid update of the already–excellent first edition. Thirty new articles by well–known younger philosophers join recent classics to bring this comprehensive collection right up to the moment.

Lynne Rudder Baker, University of Massachusetts – Amherst

 

An outstanding collection of classic to contemporary essays on some of the most interesting topics in metaphysics. It would provide a great basis for an upper–level undergraduate or graduate course in metaphysics.

Amie Thomasson, University of Miami
