With D.M. Armstrong, Campbell is one of the founders of so called Australian metaphysics (see Australian materialism) and, within it, of a variety of trope theory. He also has a distinctive view of concrete and abstract objects: the former can exist by themselves, and the latter are incapable of independent existence.
He refuses, following F. Ramsey, the necessity of choice between Realism and Nominalism in the problem of universals, because they both share "a false presupposition being that any quality or relation must be a universal" (Campbell 1991, preface).
