Books Info:

Sketch for a Systematic Metaphysics free pdf David Armstrong sets out his metaphysical system in a set of concise and lively chapters each dealing with one aspect of the world. He begins with the assumption that all that exists is the physical world of space-time. On this foundation he constructs a coherent metaphysical scheme that gives plausible answers to many of the great problems of metaphysics. He gives accounts of properties, relations, and particulars- laws of nature- modality- abstract objects such as numbers- and time and mind.
