9. Is nothing something? We have been considering what there is and what it is. It made sense to start with the easy things. It seemed clear that there were particulars and properties, that changes occurred and some of them could be caused. There were wholes as well as parts, and there were persons. Some other topics were less easy. It is disputed whether wholes are sometimes more than their parts, what possibilities are, whether spiritual substances exist, and whether time is a thing that passes.

2. What is a circle? The opening question of this chapter is very simple to ask. What is a circle? You would have thought that in all the centuries of human civilization, we would have answered it by now. And there is at least one very clear and simple answer, which is provided by geometry. Mathematicians have a precise definition of a circle. But we should put aside that definition for now because it is not quite the type of answer that interests us.

1. What is a table? When I look at the world around me, I see that I am surrounded by all sorts of things. I see a table and two chairs, buildings, an aeroplane, a box of paper clips, pens, a dog, people, and a wide variety of other kinds of things. But this is a book about metaphysics, and in metaphysics we are concerned with the nature of things in very general terms. I am tempted to say, as a metaphysician, that all of these things I have listed are particular things, or groups or kinds of them. The

6. How does time pass? We have been considering what there is in terms of some of the most general categories. There are particulars and properties, but there are also things like wholes, parts, changes, and causes. The latter two could not exist unless there was also something else: time. For a change to occur, there must at least be something at one time that is no longer at a later time, or vice versa. Philosophers argue about whether there could be time without change, but it surely looks certain that there could not be change without time.

You could have been late to your appointment if there had been an incident on the way; Michael Foot could have been prime minister; the Eiffel Tower could have been disassembled in 1909, and it could have been 350 metres high, instead of its actual height. Yet we also accept that many things are not possible. You couldn’t jump to the Moon; lead can’t transmute into gold; a leopard can’t turn into a chicken; and so

Alight before you have paid, and the long arm of the criminal law may be expected to pursue you. The bus is involved in an accident. The law is ready to determine who is responsible for the injury you sustained.

2. Law’s branches The numerous branches of the law constantly multiply. As social life is transformed, the law is rarely far behind to invent and define new concepts and rules, and to resolve the disputes that inevitably arise. Thus our brave new legal world continues to usher in novel subjects: space law, sports law, Internet law, media law, and so on. At the core of most legal systems, however, are the fundamental disciplines that hark back to the roots of law: the law of contract, tort, criminal law, and the law of property. To that nucleus must be added a
