This guide is a number of essays about systematic ontology. The portions of its title-Things and Ways They Are-are indicative of 2 widely and intensively mentioned problems in present ontology, particularly, what classes of entities there are and in what tactics they’re related for our discourses. The 3 sections of the amount correspond to focuses of ontological analysis: Before Ontology is devoted to conceptual, methodological, and meta-ontological problems, Ontology at Work raises basic subjects of categorial ontology, and the general segment, Ontology in Application, discusses questions comparable to the ones with regards to loose will and our conception of the human being. The guide is a tribute to Edmund Runggaldier at the instance of his sixty-fifth birthday. Its seventeen papers are authored by means of such outstanding students as Lynne Rudder Baker, Franz von Kutschera, E. J. Lowe, Otto Muck, Paul Weingartner, Timothy Williamson, and plenty of others.
