Review quote

"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."--Mind"The case Hawley makes for stage theory is a persuasive one . 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."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
