New Waves in Metaphysics presents a snapshot of the current and future state of metaphysics. Thirteen young scholars, working on the cutting edge of the discipline, have addressed themselves to a wide range of questions in contemporary metaphysics, including: / What exists, in the most fundamental sense? / What is the nature of human agency? / Does physics give us knowledge of the fundamental nature of the world? / What is causation? / What is race? Are races real? / Do numbers exist? What might numbers be? / Do ecosystems exist? / Is intentionality a real feature of the world? These essays will be of interest to specialists in contemporary metaphysics as well as to anyone wanting to discover the diversity and depth of this ancient area of philosophical research.
