Riddles of Existence makes metaphysics genuinely accessible, even fun. Its lively, informal style brings the riddles to life and shows how stimulating they can be to think about. No philosophical background is required to enjoy this book. It is ideal for beginning students. Anyone wanting tothink about life's most profound questions will find Riddles of Existence provocative and entertaining.This new edition is updated throughout, and features two extra, specially written chapters: one on metaphysical questions to do with morality, and the other on questions about the nature of metaphysics itself.
Earl Conee is Professor in Philosophy at the University of Rochester, New York. Theodore Sider is Professor of Philosophy at New York University.
