Being by Robin Le Poidevin
Book DescriptionWhat is it for an object to persist through time? Do things have essences? What is the relation between an object and its parts? Are objects more real than their parts, or vice versa? Could there be spatio-temporally coincident objects? Do we need an ontology of truth-makers? These interrelated questions reflect the central concerns of contemporary metaphysics, which in recent years has seen an intensification of interest in ontological issues. They are the focus of the essays collected in this volume, which arose from the Being: Developments in Contemporary Metaphysics conference held at the University of Leeds in September, 2006.

Books By Author Robin Le Poidevin
Agnosticism: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (October 2010)
What is agnosticism? Is it a belief, or just the absence of belief? What is the 'agnostic' principle? Robin Le Poidevin takes a philosophical approach to the issue of agnosticism, challenging some of the common assumptions, arguing in favour of the agnostic attitude, and considering its place in society and education.
Images of Time, Paperback (October 2009)
The Images of Time is a philosophical investigation of the nature of time and the mind's ways of representing it. Robin Le Poidevin examines the ways in which we perceive time and change, the means by which memory links us with the past, the attempt to represent change and movement in art, and the nature of fictional time.
Travels in Four Dimensions, Paperback (September 2004)
Does time really flow, or is that simply an illusion? Did time have a beginning? What does it mean to say that time has a direction? The author provides an introduction to these questions, and many other puzzles and paradoxes. He aims to give the readers a basis to think about these problems independently, avoiding jargon and technicality.
