This volume is an essential collection of the most influential
attempts to depict the fundamental nature of reality or being-from
Spinoza's doctrine of a single, indivisible substance to Russell's
"logical atomism" and from the Buddha's account of a casual
interrelated world to Leibniz's one of causally independent
"monads." Among the metaphysical debates are those between monists
and pluralist and materialist and idealist. The authors range in
time from Lao Tzu and Plato to Heidegger and Whitehead. The
selected texts include many classics from 'the golden age' of
metaphysics in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. A
comprehensive introduction by the editor, together with his
preambles to each text, makes this an ideal volume for students on
historically informed courses in metaphysics and the more
speculative realms of philosophy.
