    The Rational Society, A Critical Study of Santayana's Social Thought. [REVIEW]T. A. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 24 (3):551-551.
    Singer's study of the technical problems of Santayana's systematic thought will not satisfy his friends nor his detractors. Her reduction of Santayana's Lucretian materialism to epiphenomenalism will seem inadequate to the former. The latter may see Santayana as merely technically inept. While Singer does not claim to offer a comprehensive study of Santayana's thought, her theses " that Santayana was a naturalist and a materialist in the same sense and on the same grounds throughout; that despite even radical changes in (...)

  5. Reality, Knowledge and Value: A Basic Introduction to Philosophy. [REVIEW]T. A. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (2):368-369.
    Shaffer takes a tour of some perennial questions in this lucid and simply written primer. How do I know I am not dreaming? How does reality differ from a dream? How can we be certain of our knowledge? Varying viewpoints are briefly summarized. The fallibilist view that even a priori mathematical truths and first person reports of feelings and perceptions are subject to error is examined, as is the anti-fallibilist reply that the theoretical possibility of error, without actual evidence, is (...)

    The Moral Life. [REVIEW]T. A. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (2):355-356.
    The author sets himself the problem of justifying the moral ought. Moral theorists since Hume have argued that an ought can only be derived from another ought. Utilitarians say we ought to maximize the good, but cannot say why. Intuitionists claim the ought is self evident, but cannot deal satisfactorily with differing intuitions. The failure of the major traditions of Western moral philosophy to successfully explain why we ought to act in certain ways has led to ethical skepticism and moral (...)

    La Dialectica Platonica. [REVIEW]T. A. - 1962 - Review of Metaphysics 16 (2):397-397.
    The development of Plato's dialectical method is traced through a number of dialogues. Beginning with the Meno, the evolution of a "pre-critical" dialectic ending with the Phaedo is considered. This first dialectic is described as an ascending or inductive movement from sensible things, through which the Forms are apprehended intuitively and independently. The problem of the mutual participation of the Forms, and of sensible things in them, occasions a growing crisis which comes to a head in the first part of (...)
