This introductory chapter contains a number of stage-setting discussions, offering an analysis of the term ‘material object’. It also introduces the book's background metaphysics by identifying and taking sides on substantivalist disputes, on occupation and location relations, on principles of composition and decomposition, on the nature of material simples and material atomless gunk, on theories of persistence for material objects, on eternalism, on modality and recombination principles, on vagueness, on bruteness, and on the epistemic role of intuitions.

Keywords:   bruteness, composition, eternalism, intuitions, location, modality, persistence, simples, substantivalism, vagueness
