Review: Douglas Ehring’s Tropes, Properties, Objects and Mental Causation

The Journal of Philosophy  110.2 (2013): 111-115.

Abstract: In this thought-provoking monograph, Douglas Ehring continues the project, initiated in Causation & Persistence (2007), of explicating and defending his own particular brand of the so-called Trope Theory. In Tropes, some of the views defended in his previous book (such as the view that tropes persist by enduring, that trope-persistence plays an essential role in our understanding of singular causation, and the view that, for these reasons (among others) the world is most likely (at least partly) constituted by tropes) are brought together with views developed and defended in numerous articles since then.
