"This is a very fine collection of essays about David Lewiss work. Centered around such central Lewisian doctrines as Humean supervenience, modal realism, the counterfactual analysis of causation, and physicalism, the collection is a fitting tribute to his outstanding work and to its influence."
Jeremy Butterfield, University of Cambridge
"This collection gathers papers on David Lewiss metaphysics. Since the editors have assembled a superb group of authors, the result is at the cutting edge of the best work in contemporary metaphysics. Together with Lewiss writings it would make for an outstanding seminar in metaphysics."
Ernest Sosa, Brown University
"David Lewiss work occupies a central place in contemporary metaphysics, and in this volume some of our leading metaphysicians comment, interpret, and critically appraise Lewiss important and influential claims and arguments on issues like modality and possible worlds, Humean supervenience, endurance and perdurance, counterfactuals and time, causation, and the mind-body problem. This is a timely and highly useful collection indispensable to students of Lewiss work in metaphysics and philosophy of mind."
