Review quote

Careful and painstaking ... The standard of argument is high and Hirsch has something interesting to say on every topic he discusses. I believe that no one interested in its sucject could read this book without profit. * Philosophical Quarterly * Hirsch's book is required reading for anyone with a serious interest in identity in particular and metaphysics in general. The book is tightly argued, clearly written, and filled with fascinating material. * Philosophical Review *show more

Back cover copy

The book as a whole tackles a cluster of central metaphysical issues in a consistently clear and careful manner. Moreover, Hirsch is pleasantly undogmatic and endeavors to give fair treatment to those views he eventually rejects. His arguments for his own conclusions are frequently all-the-more forceful for that. The standard of argument is high and Hirsch has something interesting to say on every topic he discusses.show more
