Review

"The strength and variety of the papers in this volume represents a maturity in the metaphysics of powers with a number of programs up and running―some of them seeking collaboration in vision, others locking horns over territory. It offers excellent depth for comparative reading and it’s a must read for anyone working in the ontology of powers today."Duncan C. MacLean, Mount Royal University, Canada in Philosophy in Review

"Marmodoro's volume represents a refreshing turn in the literature on dispositions. [T]he impression that emerges from the book as a whole is one of a maturing movement in metaphysics, well past its reactionary, manifesto-penning stage and into a period of rapid, self-critical development. Anyone with an interest in the prospects for a disposition-based ontology should read it."Troy Cross, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
