This book is two things, a survey of philosophical positions and a polemic in favor of one of them. The positions surveyed are the many varieties of subjectivism and realism; the polemic is in favor of the form of realism known as "scientific realism. Scientific realism is the view that there is a mind-independent real world which we cannot know perfectly or exhaustively, but which we can know to an increasingly good approximation

Some of the most eminent and enduring philosophical questions concern matters of priority: what is prior to what? What 'grounds' what? Is, for instance, matter prior to mind? Recently, a vivid debate has arisen about how such questions have to be understood. Oxford University Press. Förster, E. and Melamed, Y. (ed. forthcoming.

Analytic philosophy has recently demonstrated a revived interest in metaphysical problems about possibility and necessity. Graeme Forbes here provides a careful description of the logical background of recent work in this area for those who may be unfamiliar with it, moving on to d discuss the distinction between modality de re and modality de dicto and the ontological commitments of possible worlds semantics. In addition, Forbes offers a unified theory of the essential properties of sets, organisms, artefacts, substances, and events, based on the doctrine that identity facts must be intrinsically grounded, and analyzes and rejects apparent counterexamples to this doctrine.
