Beschreibung

Lucid, absorbing, and original, this book defends the theory that the material world is composed of temporal as well as spatial parts. Along the way, it addresses many topics on the metaphysics of time and identity. These include the status of past and future objects, the nature of motion and change, the existence of composite objects, and examples involving two things in the same place at the same time.

Pressestimmen

For many years to come, this is sure to be the locus classicus with respect to which all those engaged with the literature on persistence must position themselves. Kathrin Koslicki, Philosophical Review Sider's efforts have opened the gate to a fertile field in logical space. The Philosophical Quarterly Four-Dimensionalism will be a valuable addition to our bookshelves. The Philosophical Quarterly This is simply a superb book in metaphysics - handsomely written, cleverly argued, and exceedingly clear. Hud Hudson, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Sider does not deny that this four-dimensionalist conception of persisting things is counterintuitive. His claim is that, all things considered, it yields a more coherent ontology than any of its competitors. His defence of this claim is impressive: bold, clear, wide-ranging and fair-minded; it is the best of its kind on offer. Barry Dainton, Times Literary Supplement
