|Handbook of Metaphysics and Ontology|
1991, 433 S. und 1004 S, Gb, (Philosophia)
The Handbook (aus der Reihe 'Analytica') reflects the conviction that the history of metaphysics and ontology can each throw valuable ligh on the other. Thus it is designed to serv both as a means of making more widely accessible the results of recent scholarship in the history of philosophy, and also as a unique work of reference in relation to the metaphysical themes at the centre of much current debate in analytic philosophy. The work contains more than 450 shorter articles on specific themes and methods in metaphysics and ontology, together with biographical essays summarizing the thinking of the most important philosophers within the tradition dealt with. In addition, it contains about 20 longer survey articles mapping out both historically and systematically the main areas of metaphysics and ontology. A detailed index of cross-references is provided.
