Item description for Metaphysics: The Classic Readings (Philosophy: The Classic Readings) by David E. Cooper...

Chronologically arranged, this anthology contains the essential primary readings on metaphysics, stretching from presocratic views of reality, such as Heraclitus and Permenides, up to Russell. The text includes many of the great classics such as: Aristotle's work from Metaphysics, Aquinas and Ockham on universals and nominalism, and Kant's work from the First Critique. Moving forward with the outstanding work of Russell and Heidegger, this volume also covers key non-Western readings. The volume discusses metaphysics as Aristotle originally defined it and includes selections that represent different views on the fundamental nature of existence. The selections examine the study of realism, idealism, materialism and phenomenalism. Each selection begins with a substantial introduction to metaphysics and offers helpful discussions about the context, content and relationship to other writings.

Reviews - What do customers think about Metaphysics: The Classic Readings (Philosophy: The Classic Readings)?

An excellent selection from a broad range of approaches.  Apr 20, 2002
David Cooper does a fantastic job of selecting key excerpts from the great works in Metaphysics covering the dawn of Greek philosophy up through Heidegger. He also includes some key Eastern texts, something missing from many anthologies. Cooper organizes the works in a logical, historical progression and situates them nicely with brief introductions to each selection. This is a very good textbook for any Metaphysics course and also a good purchase for any student of lover of philosophy who simply doesn't have the time or moneyto read through the entire texts of Kant, Heidegger, Schopenhauer, Spinoza, etc. Also, in reading through massive, difficult texts such as The Critique of Pure Reason or Being and Time it can be hard to know exactly what you are looking for. What Cooper does is cut to some of the most relevant sections of these works. I feel that dealing with the primary texts is necessary and rewarding for those teaching or taking Metaphysics. For all of those people, I would highly recommend this book.
