ADAMS, R. M.,
What Is, and What Is In Itself. A Systematic Ontology.
Oxford University Press, 2021. 240p. Hardback. In this volume, Adams (emer., Yale Univ.) puts forth a very intense contribution to analytic metaphysics that is in dialogue with contemporary thinkers such as Peter van Inwagen, David Lewis, and Willard Van Orman Quine, and important early modern philosophers such as Descartes, Leibniz, and Malebranche.While the text is certainly dense and meant for higher-level students and scholars, it gives a skillful and necessary summary and analysis of modern metaphysical thought up to the present.
