?This is a resource no metaphysician in the Anglo-American tradition will want to do without. Summing Up: Essential.? (CHOICE
, October 2009)
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.
