Metaphysics (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


A revision of a classic philosophical study of the fundamental nature of all reality.. In this classic, exciting, and thoughtful text, Metaphysics , Peter van Inwagen examines three profound questions: What are the most general features of the world? Why is there a world? and What is the place of human beings in the world? Metaphysics introduces to readers the curious notion that is metaphysics, how it is conceived both historically and currently. The author's work can serve either as a textbook in a university course on metaphysics or as an introduction to metaphysical thinking for the interested reader. This second edition, revised though not fundamentally changed, includes the basis of the first edition with a new chapter on the nature of time. 0813327318 the Possibility of Resurrection and Other Essays in Christian Apologetics 0813390559 Metaphysics : Second Edition
