    Alessandro Achillini and His Doctrine of ‘Universals’ and ‘Transcendentals.’ a Study in Renaissance Ockhamism. [REVIEW]M. B. B. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 29 (2):347-349.
    With the growing interest in Renaissance studies, it is gratifying to see a major scholarly work on a little known philosopher of the Averroistic trend of Aristotelianism that had its seat in his native city of Bologna. Matsen’s study, whose first draft was submitted as a doctoral dissertation at Columbia University, opens with a summary presentation of Alessandro Achillini’s life and works based on archival documents and other first-hand sources. The body of the work focuses on two major themes: the (...)

    Mid-Twentieth Century American Philosophy: Personal Statements. [REVIEW]M. B. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (4):747-747.
    This latest in attempts to collect statements from living American philosophers presents thoughts and interests of those writing in the "middle decades," the fifty years from 1920 to 1970. The editor has restricted himself to America’s senior philosophers asking each to reflect on "the things that matter most," or "to share the motifs in their work and to present concerns about their world". Although some influential elders are missing from this collection, an interesting variety of viewpoints and styles of American (...)

    The Secular Is Sacred. Platonism and Thomism in Marsilio Ficino’s Platonic Theology. [REVIEW]M. B. B. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (3):551-552.
    Marsilio Ficino is the best representative of Renaissance Platonism as well as the most prominent member of the Florentine Academy that he organized at the request of Cosimo de’ Medici. After he had given to the Western world the first complete Latin translation of the works of Plato and Plotinus, he wrote numerous commentaries, dialogues, and treatises, but his major work is the Theologia Platonica in eighteen books. In this treatise Ficino portrays the universe as a harmonious system of beings (...)

    The Problem of Life. An Essay in the Origins of Biological Thought. [REVIEW]M. B. B. - 1977 - Review of Metaphysics 30 (3):535-536.
    The study of the origin and nature of life can be a problem, especially for a scientist whose method precludes any conclusion that would transcend the realm of empirical evidence. A scientist, and more specifically a biologist, can ascertain the characteristics that distinguish a living from a non-living being, but he is unable to attain to the source of those characteristics or life itself, which defies all empirical analysis. Here science must surrender to philosophy and let reason draw conclusions that (...)

    This massive study of the history of ancient philosophy is the result of the author's twenty-five years of research while teaching at the Catholic University of Milan, Italy. The importance and popularity of the work is shown by the fact that at the time of the completion of the fifth volume in January of 1979, the first four volumes had already gone through either two or three editions. Reale's work has been preceded by many scholarly studies in the field of (...)

    Rousseau’s Political Philosophy. [REVIEW]M. B. - 1977 - Review of Metaphysics 31 (2):317-320.
    Of all modern political philosophers, Rousseau is one most given to interpretations widely divergent and often contradictory. A romanticist, an intellectualist, an individualist, a collectivist, a Platonist, a fascist—these are some of the terms loosely attributed to his cast of mind. Ever-new interpretations are welcome. Two new volumes on his political philosophy have appeared within a recent period—both scholarly, penetrating, challenging, and novel. Between them they make for a fresh dialogue: Stephen Ellenburg’s, which in emphasizing the will embodies an Augustinian (...)

    The Politics of Autonomy: A Kantian Reading of Rousseau’s Social Contract. [REVIEW]M. B. - 1979 - Review of Metaphysics 32 (3):556-557.
    Levine’s Kantian reading of Rousseau’s social contract is a legitimate enterprise. Accordingly, he rightly distinguishes the a priori from the a posteriori elements of the work. The former becomes the ground of liberty, rebaptized as autonomy. The latter is devoted to a discussion of the relation of theory to practice.

    In this volume the author discusses the major trends in the philosophy of religion from Kant to the beginning of the twentieth century. The work is divided into three parts dealing respectively with the methods of study of the religious phenomenon, the nature of religion, and the approach to religion from experience and the principle of immanence. In Part I the theological method, based on revelation and authority, is first discussed; and then the rationalistic method emphasizing the approach to religion (...)

    Le Dieu d'Anselme Et les Apparences de la Raison. [REVIEW]M. B. B. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 26 (2):372-372.
    The ontological argument continues to draw the attention of philosophers of different persuasions. This is one of the latest works on the subject. In it the Anselmian proof as developed in the Proslogion is submitted to careful analysis and placed in relation to Anselm’s approach to God in the Monologion. Thus the title of the book seems to be justified, inasmuch as it is Anselm’s notion of God that is investigated from a rational viewpoint rather than the ontological argument alone. (...)

    Pragmatism as Humanism: The Philosophy of William James. [REVIEW]M. B. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (4):751-751.
    This book attempts to portray a unity in the work of William James that the author believes is achieved by James’ constant concern with man. Dooley begins with an analysis of James’ early psychological works emphasizing the key notion of an efficacious consciousness that selects according to its needs and purposes. The author begins to paint an "interactionist" view of man, although at this point in James’ career it is admittedly only a "passing thought." A similar vein is struck in (...)

    In 1967 Paul L'Archevêque published an analytical Index of the works of Teilhard de Chardin which has become an invaluable reference source for the thought of the renowned French scientist. This new Index is to a great extent a continuation and implementation of the former one. While it makes up for some of its deficiencies, it contains many additional references to Teilhard’s works which appeared after 1967, including some unpublished letters and pertinent material from the "Cahiers" of the "Editions du (...)

    The Erosion of Faith: An Inquiry Into the Origins of the Contemporary Crisis in Religious Thought. [REVIEW]M. B. B. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (4):757-757.
    The many conflicting views that have given rise to the contemporary crisis in religious thought can be traced to certain figures who have played a major role in the shaping of present-day thinking. An exploration of the ideas of these philosopher-theologians, from Schleiermacher and Kierkegaard to Barth, Tillich, Maritain, Berdyaev, Buber, and such lesser figures as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Harvey Cox, Thomas Altizer, and Richard Rubenstein, has been the chief objective of the author of this work. His survey of modern and (...)

    The Opening Mind: A Philosophical Study of Humanistic Concepts. [REVIEW]M. B. - 1978 - Review of Metaphysics 32 (1):160-161.
    Weitz claims that humanistic philosophy requires open concepts. Concepts are said to be "neutral intermediaries between words and things". For Frege they must be sharply defined; for Weitz open concepts are sets of criteria that are either nonnecessary or nonsufficient or both in the definition of something, though they may be rejectable or undebatable. Thus he dismisses with Karl Popper "essentialism," and thus also Platonism and Aristotelianism. He finds early suggestions of open concepts in C. L. Stevenson’s "Persuasive Definitions," Friedrich (...)

    The Phenomenology of Charles S. Peirce: From the Doctrine of Categories to Phaneroscopy. [REVIEW]M. B. - 1976 - Review of Metaphysics 29 (4):746-747.
    Rosensohn’s interpretation rejects the thesis that Peirce had several systems, perhaps as many as four, each of which is responsive to his new discoveries in logic. Against this view Rosensohn traces the development of Peirce’s system as a coherent phenomenological search, shaped by his "lifelong interest in logic, the sciences, ethics, aesthetics and metaphysics", and culminating in his phaneroscopy, the description of the phaneron. Rosensohn’s text consists of two parts. Part I, "The Elements of Phenomenology," consists of three chapters, two (...)

    A collection of essays written over a period of ten years, this volume reflects a continuing concern with the impact of Kant’s critique upon the study of religion. Kant’s challenge to all subsequent speculation about religion is framed by Dupré in the following questions: "How can we restore the theoretical support of religious faith after Kant’s critique of the arguments for the existence of God? How can a method be conceived for the philosophical study of religion on the basis of (...)

    Four Pragmatists: A Critical Introduction to Peirce, James, Mead, and Dewey. [REVIEW]M. B. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (4):763-764.
    This work is at once sympathetic and critical, as well as a very clear and perceptive treatment of some of the major theories of four pragmatists. The author holds pragmatism to be a significant contribution to modern thought in that it is a serious attempt to rethink philosophical problems in the light of new scientific developments, and is comprehensive in dealing with both old and contemporary problems. The separate treatments of Peirce, James, Mead, and Dewey contain a biographical comment, explanations (...)

    This essay which was first published in 1793 and now appearing for the first time in English is, according to its editor, "one of the most neglected though most important documents of the Enlightenment". In an age when philosophy is still thought by many to be impractical, Kant’s essay attempts to show the relevance of his moral and political theory to some issues and problems that are in fact still alive today: the nature and extent of political authority, the limits (...)
