very little actual analysis. Third man argument introduced 3 different times, neither of which is more than brief statement of the argument and nothing more. rudimentary statement of Aristotle 's concept of substance proliforate all over the text, no elaboration given. Individuals such as Ibn Sinna or Alexander of Afrodisias are introduced time and time again - with no actual elaboration. The criticism of Hume mentioned is completely meaningless (Hume rejected Aristotle's conception of substance beacuse it was not based on "evidence" - does that mean that Hume does not identify any argument in favor of this concept?! that is rediculus. The negligent and possibly ignorant author had probablty forgot that that should be "sense evidence".) And over and above all, this book is made of meaningless, painfuly repiting *praise* of the metaphysics. Time and Time again. Just empty praise regarding the 'metaphysics' "philosophical and historical" imporance. again. and again. and again. With no elaboration, and not even any change of formulation. (up to about 60 percent of it's duration, in fact, is just this meaningless praise repited. very very little analysis; god or bad.) Complete waste of time and money.
