Oxford Studies in Metaphysics is the forum for the best new work in this flourishing field. OSM offers a broad view of the subject, featuring not only the traditionally central topics such as existence, identity, modality, time, and causation, but also the rich clusters of metaphysicalquestions in neighbouring fields, such as philosophy of mind and philosophy of science. Besides independent essays, volumes will often contain a critical essay on a recent book, or a symposium that allows participants to respond to one another's criticisms and questions. Anyone who wants to knowwhat's happening in metaphysics can start here.
Karen Bennett is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Cornell University. Dean W. Zimmerman is Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University, New Jersey.
