Never did get much out of reading this book. Perhaps it was not my time. Doubt I will ever return to it however. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 026253133X, Paperback)

This fascinating investigation on the borderlines of metaphysics, everyday geometry, and the theory of perception seeks to answer two basic questions: Do holes really exist? And if so, what are they? Holes are among entities that down-to-earth philosophers would like to expel from their ontological inventory. Casati and Varzi argue in favor of their existence and explore the consequences of this unorthodox approach—odd as these might appear. They examine the ontology of holes, their geometry, their part-whole relations, their identity, their causal role, and the ways we perceive them.
