Product Overview

Are there nonexistent things? What is the nature of informative identitystatements? Are the notions of essential property and of essence intelligible, and, if so, how are they to be understood? Are individual things material substances orclusters of qualities? Can the account of the unity of a complex entity avoidvicious infinite regresses?

These questions have attractedwidespread attention among philosophers recently, as evidenced by a proliferation ofarticles in the leading philosophical journals. In Being Qua Being they receivesystematic, unified treatment, grounded in an account of the nature of theapplication to the world of our conceptual apparatus. A central thesis of the bookis that the topic of identity is primary, and that existence and predication, bothessential and accidental, are to be understood in terms of identity.
