This guide is a definitive introduction to the core areas of metaphysics. It brings together sixteen internationally respected philosophers who examine topics including causation, temporality, ontology, personal identity, idealism, and realism. The book argues that although it is impossible to quantitatively assess the success of the metaphysical approach, a wide range of important questions cannot be productively addressed without its input. It is intended to engage both general readers and specialists and provides a solid foundation for further study.
