Readership: Scholars and students of philosophy, especially of metaphysics
George Molnar, University of Sydney
"In this probing little book, George Molnar rightly places the topics of causal power at the center of a proper understanding of many basic issues in metaphysics ... Its scope and clarity of argument should enable one to assess the general prospects of his modalized vision of reality, while also providing a fine point of departure for finer-grained research programs." - Timothy O'Connor, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"Powers is a rich book. In the course of characterising and arguing for a posteriori dualism, Molnar contributes views on most of the important questions about dispositions ... Specialists in the metaphysics of dispositions...will surely value the book for its systematic coverage of the major topics.
Non-specialists will also find the book useful, both as an introduction to the central philsophical issues surrounding dispositions, and as an example of a systematic approach to metaphysics." - Michael Fara, Mind
