  3. Ontology Revisited

    Metaphysics in Social and Political Philosophy

    By Ruth Groff

    Series: Ontological Explorations (Routledge Critical Realism)

    Groff's argument runs counter to the familiar anti-metaphysical habit. Social and political philosophy, she maintains, is not as metaphysically neutral as it may seem. Even the most deontological of theories connects up with an attendant set of philosophical commitments regarding what kinds of...

  8. Physics and Metaphysics

    Theories of Space and Time

    By Jennifer Trusted

These basic beliefs form a framework for...

    By William Seager

    Series: Philosophical Issues in Science

    Metaphysics of Consciousness opens with a development of the physicalist outlook that denies the need for any explanation of the mental. This "inexplicability" is demonstrated not to be sufficient as refutation of physicalism. However, the inescapable particularity of modes of consciousness...
