Editorial Reviews


Koons and Pickavance disclose uncommon and provocative insights regarding the role of Hirschian Exotic Objects in the perdurantism debate, and Powerist objections to the possibility of time travel, without swamping the reader in backstory . In conclusion, Metaphysics: The Fundamentals provides a compendium of sources and tricky examples for any researcher seeking familiarization with a range of debates. - Nicholas Danne, Metaphysica 2017; 18(1): 151 154.


“Robert C. Koons and Timothy H. Pickavance have mastered the art of succinct and non-technical digression. They are to be commended for their clear summaries. And, most important, they write in a way that invites readers to make up their own minds without attempting to conceal their own conclusions. As a result they have written a refreshingly different introduction to metaphysics, which I highly recommend.”
—Peter Forrest, University of New England

"A superb overview of the central issues in contemporary metaphysics, written with clarity and rigor, exploring both particular issues and deep structural divides."
—Alexander R. Pruss, Baylor University
