Readership: Scholars and students of metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of language
Katherine Hawley, Department of Logic and Metaphysics, University of St Andrews
Review(s) from previous edition"How Things Persist is a careful and clever defence of stage theory ... the book is not only a worthy defence of a novel ontology, it is also an instructive survey of the metaphysics of material objects in general and the philosophy of persistence in particular. - Trenton Merricks, Mind
"How Things Persist is a well structured, well written, solid, crisp and lucid investigation into the cluster of metaphysical problems that surround the issue of persistence." - Heather Dyke, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
