A Survey of Metaphysics by E.J. Lowe

I suppose this is a good introductory book; I’ve been told it uses little jargon compared to other metaphysics texts. The title is misleading: Poor opinions, and not necessarily well-argued opinions. Lowe’s “method” of arguing from if sense is not necessarily a bad one, but his common sense is not actually common. In many cases, he does not have a secondary argument for a claim besides his I suppose this is a good introductory book; I’ve been told it uses little jargon compared to other metaphysics texts.

In many cases, he does not have a secondary argument for a claim besides his uncommon “common sense,” leaving me and similarly-minded readers at a loss.

Furthermore, he likes to ignore prominent scientific theories “for the sake of argument” which eh very tired very surveu.

Common sense is not a good argument when, for example, scientific proof goes against it as it does in many cases. Furthermore, Lowe doesn’t know how to use colons, which makes for irritating reading.

May 05, Richard Newton rated it really liked it Shelves: I have read a couple of introductory textbooks on metaphysics, and this one stands up as good. It is relatively easy to read and of sufficient depth for an undergraduate metaphysics course with some specific additional readings around survye of interest.

I very occasionally found the writing style a little irritating – but that is probably just me. On the other hand, the introduction and the way it builds understanding are to be praised.

: A Survey of Metaphysics (): E. J. Lowe: Books

As it seems with any metaphysics book there is a choice o I have read a couple of introductory textbooks on metaphysics, and this one rj up as good. As it seems with any metaphysics book there is a metaphysifs of topics, which does not seem to cover the full spectrum of what might be considered as metaphysics.

This book is good on identity and change, universals and particulars, necessity and possibility, space and time, and ok on causation. It misses out other topics such as mind-body problem, free will and determinism – so if these are of interest look elsewhere or be ready to buy an additional book or two.
