Reviews

'[Real Essentialism] presents vigorous and wide-ranging arguments in defense of an Aristotelian metaphysical scheme ! This book puts forward many unfashionable views. But it argues for them with vigor and erudition.' -- Crawford L. Elder, Analysis Reviews 'Oderberg ! exemplifies the unfortunately rare combination in analytical philosophy of rigorous and historically informed argumentation !This book places hylomorphism squarely on the table for discussion.' -- Sebastian Rehnman, Review of Metaphysics 'a major intellectual achievement...I can particularly recommend, for those interested in such matters--as many metaphysicians presently are--his very well informed discussion of powers and laws of nature, which raises important objections to many current accounts of these.' -E.J. Lowe, The Philosophical Quarterly "...there can be no doubt that this learned and rigorous work deserves a wide readership."--Edward Feser, Faith and Philosophy
