This volume begins with an Introduction from Dominic Hyde, "The `Jungle Book' in Context," an essay that situates Exploring Meinong's Jungle and Beyond historically. We provide the original Preface by Routley, followed by Chapter 1: "Exploring Meinong's Jungle and Beyond." In Chapter 2, Nicholas Griffin argues that Sylvan's project was insufficiently radical with his essay, "Why the Original Theory of Items Didn't (Quite) Go Far Enough." Sylvan revisits his position from this time in Chapter 3, with his article, "Re-Exploring Item-Theory." Filippo Casati, who has worked in the Routley Archives then takes up the question of the future of Sylvan's research program in his essay, "The Future Perfect of Exploring Meinong's Jungle."
Iconic and iconoclastic Australian philosopher Richard Routley (ne Sylvan) published Exploring Meinong's Jungle and Beyond in 1980. This work has fallen out of print, yet without great fanfare it has influenced two generations of philosophers and logicians.
