    Abstract

    The problem of persistence is as old as the tradition of systematic ontology. How can we explain that the middle-sized standard objects of everyday’s life are regarded normally as remaining “the same”, even if they change their properties and their material constituents? The aim of this edition is to present new arguments, perspectives, and theoretical backgrounds concerning “persistence”: There is much more to consider than the classical distinction between “endurantism” and “perdurantism”.
