As someone also interested in Philosophy, I took plenty of interest in this book; I found the discussion of "a kitchen table when you're not there" and the difficulty of expression as recurring central themes to be extremely well done both through the explicit thoughts of the characters as well as the events of the novel. The general issue of 'what can last?' is of course nothing new, but Woolf's use of three different prongs in her assault on the subject adds a degree of range to the philosophic depth.
