Winner of the 2003 American Philosophical Association Prize


For many years to come, this is sure to be the locus classicus with respect to which all those engaged with the literature on persistence must position themselves. Kathrin Koslicki, Philosophical Review This is simply a superb book in metaphysics - handsomely written, cleverly argued, and exceedingly clear. Hud Hudson, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Sider does not deny that this four-dimensionalist conception of persisting things is counterintuitive. His claim is that, all things considered, it yields a more coherent ontology than any of its competitors. His defence of this claim is impressive: bold, clear, wide-ranging and fair-minded; it is the best of its kind on offer. Barry Dainton, Times Literary Supplement
