Product Description


"....Familiar Objects and their Shadows is an exciting and ambitious book, and Elder takes the best current arguments in the field and takes them forwards."
--George Lazaroiu, PhD, Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences

Book Description

Most contemporary metaphysicians are sceptical about the reality of familiar objects. They prefer an ontology of the spatially tiny or temporally tiny (or both). Crawford L. Elder argues that all such attempts to 'explain away' familiar objects project downwards, onto the tiny entities, structures and features of familiar objects themselves.
