Hunks of Matter

The Grand Arche at La Défense: A nice tesseract, a 3D model of a 4D object

OMG as they say I'm so excited. I wrote a report for Cambridge UP and this time they're paying me in books, as I need to bone up on theories of physical objects and causality if I'm ever going to write Realist Magic over the summer.

So this one plopped into my mailbox, with the rather wonderful title (because strangely ordinary): The Ontology of Physical Objects: Four-Dimensional Hunks of Matter, by Mark Heller.

I think I can safely predict what it's going to say but the adventure will be in reading it. If anyone has a sense of this let me know, I'm all ears.
