This collection of essays originated in the Summer School Metaphysics or Modernity?, which was held at the University of Bamberg in August 2012. Designed as a forum for graduate students in philosophy, the Summer School brought together a highly diverse group of young academics who more often than not came from utterly different schools and traditions of thought. This pluralism is reflected in the pages of this book. While the volume is roughly divided into two halves one with a more historical focus, the other with a more systematic focus the reader will find an unusually wide array of topics and questions treated here. Since the aforementioned pluralism was one of the main strengths of our Summer School, this is something in which we take much pride.
