Bennett, Karen. There is no special problem with metaphysics
2016, Philosophical Studies 173 (1):21-37
Added by: Clotilde Torregrossa, Contributed by: Naomi Osorio-KupferblumAbstract: I argue for the claim in the title. Along the way, I also address an independently interesting question: what is metaphysics, anyway? I think that the typical characterizations of metaphysics are inadequate, that a better one is available, and that the better one helps explain why metaphysics is no more problematic than the rest of philosophy
