Metaphysics

Most popular at the top

  • Reality Makingby Mark Jago

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 64.99

    What kinds of entity are fundamental to reality, and how do dependent entities depend on the fundamental ones? How does one entity metaphysically ground another? A new generation of metaphysicians address these and related questions, which are central to contemporary metaphysics. more...

  • Consciousness and the Limits of Objectivityby Robert J. Howell

    OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 54.99

    Robert J. Howell offers a new account of the relationship between conscious experience and the physical world, based on a neo-Cartesian notion of the physical and careful consideration of three anti-materialist arguments. His theory of subjective physicalism reconciles the data of consciousness with the advantages of a monistic, physical ontology. more...

  • Objectsby Daniel Z. Korman

    OUP Oxford 2015; US$ 64.99

    Daniel Z. Korman defends a conservative and commonsense view of material-object metaphysics, and especially the question of which highly visible objects there are right before our eyes. He argues that our ordinary, natural judgments about what is there are more or less correct, and defends his claim against a variety of objections. more...

  • Descartes on Causationby Tad M. Schmaltz

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 30.99

    This book is a systematic study of Descartes' theory of causation and its relation to the medieval and early modern scholastic philosophy that provides its proper historical context. The argument presented here is that even though Descartes offered a dualistic ontology that differs radically from what we find in scholasticism, his views on causation... more...

  • The Sources of Intentionalityby Uriah Kriegel

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 30.99

    What do paintings, thoughts, words, desires, photographs, and perceptions have in common? They are all about something, are directed, are contentful - in a way chairs and trees, for example, are not. This book inquires into the source of this power of directedness that some items exhibit while others do not. more...

  • Phenomenal Intentionalityby Uriah Kriegel

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 23.99

    Phenomenal intentionality is supposed to be a kind of directedness of the mind onto the world that is grounded in the conscious feel of mental life. This book of new essays explores a number of issues raised by the notion of phenomenal intentionality. more...

  • Naturalism and the First-Person Perspectiveby Lynne Rudder Baker

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 25.99

    This book investigates the limits of scientific naturalism. It has three goals: (1) to show that no wholly impersonal account of reality can be adequate to all phenomena; (2) to formulate a nonCartesian account of the first-person perspective; (3) to develop a "near-naturalism" that accommodates the world of our encounters and interactions. more...

  • Ontology Made Easyby Amie L. Thomasson

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 52.99

    Existence questions have been topics for heated debates in metaphysics, but this book argues that they can often be answered easily, by trivial inferences from uncontroversial premises. This 'easy' approach to ontology leads to realism about disputed entities, and to the view that metaphysical disputes about existence questions are misguided. more...

  • The Concept 'Horse' Paradox and Wittgensteinian Conceptual Investigationsby Kelly Dean Jolley

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In The Foundations of Arithmetic, Gottlob Frege contended that the difference between concepts and objects was absolute. He meant that no object could be a concept and no concept an object. Benno Kerry disagreed; he contended that a concept could be an object, and that therefore the difference between concepts and objects was only relative. In this... more...

  • Meta-metaphysicsby Jiri Benovsky

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 102.82

    Metaphysical theories are beautiful. At the end of this book, Jiri Benovsky defends the view that metaphysical theories possess aesthetic properties and that these play a crucial role when it comes to theory evaluation and theory choice. Before we get there, the philosophical path the author proposes to follow starts with three discussions of metaphysical... more...
