Reality, Representation, and Projection is an important collection of new essays on a range of topics relating to realism and its rivals in metaphysics, logic, metaethics, and epistemology. The contributors are some of the leading authors in these fields, including the late Ian McFetridge, Mark Johnston, John Skorupski, Christopher Peacocke, Michael Williams, Edward Craig, Michael Smith, John Campbell, Peter Railton, David Wiggins, Bob Hale, Simon Blackburn, John Haldane, and Crispin Wright. Several of the essays constitute definitive statements of their views. In some cases authors write in response to the essays of other contributors, while in other cases they proceed independently.
Although not primarily historical, this collection includes discussions of philosophers from the Middle Ages to the present day, from Aquinas to Wittgenstein. No one seriously interested in questions about realism, whether as a general philosophical outlook or as a particular position within specific debates, can afford to be without this collection.
