Mereology is the investigation of part-whole relationships within all domains of reality and conceptualisation. Research in mereology has a long history and a high degree of theoretical articulation yet still lacks a synoptic presentation. The Handbook of Mereology collects international research in this fundamental philosophical discipline in a comprehensive volume, treating a wide range of issues in theoretical mereology, applied mereology and history of mereology. For the first time the Handbook presents mereology as an integrated field of research relevant to scholars working in widely different disciplines such as ontology, metaphysics, logic, philosophy of mind, semantics, linguistics, and knowledge representation. Addressing both specialists and interested readers it aims to serve both as a reference work as well as a systematic introduction to a field with increasing relevance in analytic philosophy.
Following the format of the Handbook of Metaphysics and Ontology, this volume will contain more than 250 articles on specific themes and research results in mereology, together with biographical essays summarizing historical contributions to the field. All articles have been specially commissioned for this work from leading authorities on the respective issues. The contributions are ordered alphabetically, yet survey articles with embedded subarticles and special attention to cross references highlight systematic connections. Each article is followed by a short list of recommended further readings. In addition the book includes the most comprehensive bibliography on mereology up-to-date.
