About the Author

Michael J. Loux is Shuster Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, USA. He is also editor of Metaphysics: Contemporary Readings, designed to accompany this textbook and also published by Routledge. His book Substance and Attribute (1978) is one of the major metaphysics books of recent years. Thomas M. Crisp is Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Biola University, USA. He has published widely on topics in metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of religion.


"Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction more than merits its fourth edition. It is a valuable text for graduate students and advanced undergraduates . . . . After reading Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction, I felt wistful for grand designs, for the majesty of an Aristotle or Spinoza. But I also felt excited by the modern effort to clear the conceptual debris that system builders leave behind. When a book of philosophy elicits such complex feelings, it is a testament to its value."

--Dana Delibovi in Teaching Philosophy
