This Anthology, intended to accompany A Companion to Metaphysics (Blackwell, 1995), brings together over 60 selections which represent the best and most important works in metaphysics during the last century. The selections are grouped under ten major metaphysical problems and each section is preceded by an introduction by the editors.
