Is personal identity psychological or physical? Determinism and freedom-are they incompatible? Do abstract entities-universals, propositions, and numbers-actually exist? In a series of provocative original essays, Contemporary Debates in Metaphysics searches for answers to some of the most contentious issues in the field today. An introductory essay by the editors on the recurring metaphysical theme of reductionism versus primitivism prepares the reader for the text's distinctive format-a series of head-to-head debates by eighteen leading professionals in metaphysics. Squaring off on opposite sides of the issues, they debate nine of the deepest and most puzzling topics in the field of contemporary metaphysics.. Offering clear and revelatory insights into sophisticated philosophical viewpoints, Contemporary Debates in Metaphysics is an excellent resource for advanced students and professional philosophers alike.
