Editorial Reviews


The issues discussed...are at the center of one of the most lively debates in contemporary metaphysics; and the position Hoffman and Rosenkrantz stake out is appealing and carefully articulated. Their views deserve careful attention from philosophers working on the metaphysics of persistence through time, personal identity, artifact identity, and mereology.
The Philosophical Review

H&R's book is a challenging read whose definitions are explicated with great rigour and exactness.
International Philosophical Quarterly, March 1998 Vol. XXXVIII, No. 1 Issue No. 149

Extremely well organised and written in a clear, uncluttered and economical style.
–E. J. Lowe, University of Durham
