A systematic overview of modern metaphysics, A Survey of Metaphysics covers all of the most important topics in the metaphysjcs. It adopts the fairly traditional conception of metaphysics as a subject that deals with the deepest questions that can be raised concerning the fundamental structure of reality as a whole. The book is divided into six main sections that address the following themes: It focuses on contemporary views and issues throughout, rather than on the history of metaphysics.
