Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Companion to Metaphysics  Feb 11, 2009
I believe that this book is extremely valuable to both the beginning and the professional philosopher. The references are all clear and concise and break down the various metaphysical concepts in way that captures the complexity of the concept while at the time making them easy to understand. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to metaphysics.
Interesting reading on interesting topics.  Jan 28, 2006
This book is an encyclopedia in one volume, organized alphabetically by topic. It consists of hundreds of articles written by a large number of philosophers. Some of the philosophers write lucidly, eschewing pompous verbiage. Unfortunately, others write in dense jargon with arcane symbolism. I didn't learn much from this volume, because, for the most part, I only understood the articles about subjects upon which I was already informed, whereas I could not understand the articles on unfamiliar topics. I recommend anyone studying this book to have one or more dictionaries of philosophy handy, because much of the trickier vocabulary is not defined in this book or in a standard dictionary. Often, the philosophical arguments and refutations are abridged to the point of incoherence, unless one previously knows the arguments. I did find this volume useful as a review to refresh my memory of philosophical issues.
A Wonderful Reference Tool and Study Guide  Jul 11, 2000
This work has helped me immeasurably in my current research as well as past school work and research. From A to Z Kim and Sosa present literally hundreds of entries for the reader as well as great reference works to launch into further research. The only pitfall I can find to the book is the fact that it is built around an analytic philosophy (which comes forth in many of the entries). However, many of the continental philosophers and Medieval philosophers are covered. The authors include current trends in the realm of metaphysics and historical trends as well. This is a great starting point for the metaphysician. Moreover, it is a great reference tool that provides other avenues, via further reference, to ignite additional study.
Thorough and indispensible.  May 11, 2000
With 264 entries from A to Z written by some of the world's leading philosophers, this encyclopedic Companion from Blackwell is an indispensible aid to students of philosophy in or out of the classroom. If you plan to do any reading in metaphysics, an investment in this volume will be handsomely repaid.

It's hard to comment on specifics since the entries themselves are so widely varied, so let me just recommend a companion volume: Michael Loux's _Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction_. (And _The Oxford Companion to Philosophy_, edited by Ted Honderich, is another keeper.)

The Blackwell "Companion" series is very good in general. See also _A Companion to Epistemology_, which is highly recommended too.
