Substance among Other Categories by Joshua Hoffman

Book Description

This book revives a neglected but important topic in philosophy: the nature of substance. The belief that there are individual substances, for example, material objects and persons, is at the core of our common-sense view of the world yet many metaphysicians deny the very coherence of the concept of substance. The authors develop an account of what an individual substance is in terms of independence from other beings. In the process many other important ontological categories are explored: property, event, space, time. The authors show why alternative theories of substance fail, and go on to defend the intelligibility (though not the existence) of interacting spiritual and material substances.

Divine Attributes by Joshua Hoffman Divine Attributes, Hardback (May 2002)

This is an analysis of the God of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam from the perspective of rational theology. It explores the nature of God, differentiates the idea of God from other historical ideas of the divine and identifies the core qualities of a maximally great, or perfect, being.

Substance by Joshua Hoffman Substance, Hardback (December 1996)

Substance: Its Nature and Existence is one of the first non-technical, accessible guides to this central problem and will be of great use to students of metaphysics and philosophy.
