about

David Armstrong sets out his metaphysical system in a set of concise and lively chapters each dealing with one aspect of the world. He begins with the assumption that all that exists is the physical world of space-time. On this foundation he constructs a coherent metaphysical scheme that givesplausible answers to many of the great problems of metaphysics. He gives accounts of properties, relations, and particulars; laws of nature; modality; abstract objects such as numbers; and time and mind.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "a model of clarity and rich in ideas ... it is a pleasure, as always, to wrestle with the deep philosophical questions that Armstrong continues to present us with so vivaciously." --E. J. Lowe, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
