"Chisholm's approach is characteristically concise.... There are ideas aplenty here...." Robert Pasnau, Review of Metaphysics
"This is an exciting book of sketches of wrok on various aspects of Chisholm's system as it has progressed since his On Metaphysics (1989)." David B. Martens, Philosophy in Review
"...a unique blend of honest, dogged devotion to detail and overarching philosophical vision...." Frederick Kroon, Dialogue
"This important book should be read by all who have a serious interest in metaphysics, epistemology, or philosophy of mind. Chisholm's ontological theory is essentially one of great strength and integrity. It is a most impressive and instructive example of how systematic philosophy grounded in formal ontology can be pursued profitably." Gary S. Rosenkrantz, The Philosophical Review
The book is an original treatise designed to defend an original, non-Aristotelian theory of categories. Arguing that there are necessary things and contingent things, the study defends the argument from design, and thus includes the category of necessary substance (God).
