“A metaphysical understanding of what the world is, how it works, and how it all fits together, in general and abstract terms, could be the most real and important thing there is. In that case, we don't do metaphysics so that we can stay healthy and wealthy: we want to stay healthy and wealthy so that we can do metaphysics.”
Stephen Mumford, Metaphysics: A Very Short Introduction

“All that matters for philosophers is that it could be true.”
Stephen Mumford, Metaphysics: A Very Short Introduction

“we should instead substitute a simple notion of existence and allow that things come into and go out of existence. When present, they are real. After that, they are not.”
Stephen Mumford, Metaphysics: A Very Short Introduction
