Sprigge - Edinburgh, Scodand Richard Sylvan - Bungendore, Australia I The Handbook of Metaphysics and Ontology reflects the conviction that the history of metaphysics and current work in metaphysics and ontology can each throw valuable light on the other. Thus it is designed to serve both äs a means of making more widely accessible the results of recent scholarship in the history of philosophy, and also äs a unique work of reference in reladon to the metaphysical themes at the centre of much current debate in analyüc philosophy. The work contains more man 450 shorter articies on specific themes and methods in metaphysics and ontology, together with biographical essays summarizing the thinking of the most important philosophers within the traditions dealt with. In addition, it contains about 20 longer survey arücles mapping out both historically and systemadcally the main areas of metaphysics and ontology. AU contributions have been speciaüy commissioned for this project from leading authorities in their respective fields. A special feature of the work is the pardcular attention that is paid to topics and issues of relevance to contemporary philosophical debates. The work includes also a series of arücles on the logical and mathematical tools of metaphysics and on the applications of metaphysical ideas within linguisdcs, psychology, cognitive science, and mathemadcs. The arücles are ordered alphabeücally and a detailed index of cross- references is provided. Each articie is provided with an up-to-date bibliography designed äs an aid to further research. The major areas dealt with include: - classical Greek metaphysics (from the Presocradcs to the later commentators) - medieval and post-medieval Scholasticism (from Boethius, Augusdne and Eriugena to Suärez and the German Protestant Scholastics) - Renaissance and Enlightenment metaphysics (Ramus, Campanella, Jungius, etc.) - rationalism (Spinoza, Descartes, Hobbes, Leibniz, Geulincx, etc.) - the philosophical roots of modern formal logic (Frege, Cantor, Russell, Whitehead, Wittgenstein etc.) - Brentano and his school (Husserl, Meinong, Twardowski, Stumpf, Marty, Ehrenfels, etc.) - the Polish school (Lukasiewicz, Lesniewski, Kotarbinski, Tarski, etc.) - modern analytic metaphysics (Quine, Chisholm, Australian Realism, the Gustav Bergmann school, Situation semantics, etc.) - neo-Aristotelianism, neo-Thomism, neo-Brentanianism and related movements.
