Editorial Reviews

Review

Thisis an excellent introduction to metaphysics. The framework provided bytruth-maker theory is helpful without unduly taking over. The selection oftopics is eminently sensible. The coverage of the relevant arguments and viewsin each chapter is clear, illuminating and very fair. The provision in each chapterof questions for discussion, selected further readings, and mind-map is alsouseful. This should be a successful text book for many introductory metaphysicscourses. (Professor Bill Brewer, Department of Philosophy, University of Warwick, UK)

In this thorough and well-written introduction to metaphysics, Jonathan Tallant has provided students and teachers of metaphysics with an exceedingly useful book covering the major topics in metaphysics. The discussion questions and references at the end of each chapter enhance the content and make it an ideal text for a course in metaphysics. (L. Nathan Oaklander, David M. French Professor and Professor of Philosophy, University of Michigan-Flint, USA)

'JonathanTallant has produced a well-informed and very up-to-date survey of the"hot" topics in contemporary analytic metaphysics, nicely unified bythe theme of truth-making. It should prove to be an invaluable aid toundergraduate teaching and a useful resource for anyone wanting toknow what is going on in metaphysics today.' (Sanford Lakoff)

if you need a book on metaphysics, not the occult stuff-this is philosophy at its best, then get this gem. I loved this book, read 1/2 of it the first day. great for classes and intro into metaphysics. i really recommend this. goes great with vaninwagen's classic.Metaphysics
