  • Time Travelsby Elizabeth Grosz

    Allen & Unwin 2005; US$ 40.90

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 129.99

    University of Minnesota Press 1985; US$ 60.00

    A comprehensive introductory study of the key concepts and problems in traditional and contemporary metaphysics.

  • Death and Lifeby Paul Fairfield

    Algora Publishing 2007; US$ 26.95
