This collection brings together key contemporary texts in metaphysics and features an interactive commentary which helps readers engage the texts critically and to use them to develop their own views. * Each text is followed by a detailed commentary, setting it in context * Includes questions designed to help readers think hard about what the author is saying and why, to think of objections, and to formulate his or her own views * Aims to improve the reader's ability to engage critically with philosophical texts, and to use them as a springboard for philosophical thought and writing * Introduces readers to the perennial problems of metaphysics and the ways that different analytic philosophers have approached them
