Editorial Reviews


'Its boldness and thoroughness, combined with its readability, make this a book that anybody concerned with the metaphysics of laws will wish to read. They will be informed and stimulated by it.' - The Australasian Journal of Philosophy

'Mumford's book is an important contribution to metaphysics. If you disagree with [Mumford], you are bound to have a lot of serious work to do. This is metaphysics at its best.' - Brian Ellis, La Trobe University, Australia

'An important and original contribution to the growing literature in defence of powers.' – The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Few texts succinctly introduce and develop new and powerful philosophical theory. No one reading this book can deny that it provides an original development and elaboration of the arguments that laws of nature do not exist. This is one of the best philosophy of science books I have read.
