Sketch for a Systematic Metaphysics Paperback / softback
David Armstrong sets out his metaphysical system in a set of concise and lively chapters each dealing with one aspect of the world.
He begins with the assumption that all that exists is the physical world of space-time.
On this foundation he constructs a coherent metaphysical scheme that gives plausible answers to many of the great problems of metaphysics.
He gives accounts of properties, relations, and particulars; laws of nature; modality; abstract objects such asnumbers; and time and mind.
