A very short introduction to Metaphysics,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Metaphysics: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Kindle Edition)
This books is an inexpensive but good introduction to the topic of Metaphysics. Of most use is its list of books for further reading. The writer does not reveal his own point of view but just raises many topics in a helpful and interesting way. From one point of view, this is a good thing in that it leaves you to do your own thinking, but from another it leaves the reader all at sea in a welter of unresolved metaphysical problems. This wets the appetite for more e.g. "A Very Short Introduction to Reality". Enduring confusion is a good place to start but developing your own point of view is really essential. It takes many years reading and thinking to work out where you stand.
