Reviews - What do customers think about Treatise on Basic Philosophy: Volume 3: Ontology I: The Furniture of the World?
Precise and perfect. Not designed for light reading. Feb 14, 2004
What kinds of things exist? What do you need to know about an object in order to differentiate it from any other object that exists? Ten years ago, these were academic questions. With the advent of terabyte databases searchable from the web, these questions have suddenly become very practical. Bunge seems to have been aware of the new importance of ontology before anybody else. This book is precise and perfect. I dare say that the mathematical notation will drive away most philosophers and all casual readers, but that the same notation will appeal strongly to logicians and computer scientists. I only wish that there were more copies in print.
