About the Author

William Desmond is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the International Program at the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Leuven (Louvain), Belgium. He is the author of many books, including the award-winning Being and the Between, also published by SUNY Press. Joseph Grange is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern Maine. He is the author of Nature: An Environmental Cosmology and The City: An Urban Cosmology, both published by SUNY Press.


"The authors command the tradition of metaphysical reflection and address contemporary philosophic concerns, taking on the attacks on metaphysics and relating to the global community. They represent a new generation of metaphysical thinkers who show that metaphysics is alive and well. The essays are widely illuminative and technically sharp." - Robert E. Wood, author of Path into Metaphysics: Phenomenological, Hermeneutical, and Dialogical Studies
