The traditional focus of debate in philosophy of action has been the causal theory of action and metaphysical questions about the nature of actions as events.

In this lucid and lively introduction to philosophy of action, Rowland Stout shows how these issues are subsidiary to more central ones that. The New Problems of Philosophy series provides accessible and engaging surveys of the most important problems in contemporary philosophy.

Each book examines a topic or theme that has emerged on the philosophical landscape in recent years, or that is a longstanding problem refreshed in light of recent work in philosophy and related disciplines.

In art, essentialism is the idea that each medium has its own particular strengths and weaknesses, contingent on its mode of communication. A chase scene, for example, may be appropriate for motion pictures, but poorly realized in poetry, because the essential components of the poetic medium are ill suited to convey the information of a chase scene.
