    Ethical Intuitionism. [REVIEW]L. H. C. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (2):371-372.
    Hudson's contribution is a general critical introduction to eighteenth century ethical intuitionism. Hudson divides intuitionism into two basic views: 1) "sentimentalism" or the "moral sense" view propounded by Shaftesbury and Hutcheson, and 2) "intellectualism," or the view that intuition is a form of reason or understanding, held in one form or another by Cudworth, Clarke, Balguy, and Price. Mention is also made of Butler, whom Hudson sees in the bridge position between the other extremes. After expounding these views, Hudson discusses (...)

    Exposition of the Posterior Analytics of Aristotle. [REVIEW]L. C. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):714-715.
    This translation of Thomas' paraphrase and analysis of Aristotle's philosophy of science is, unfortunately, mimeographed and bound in a paper cover. It lacks the introductory material which is needed to orient the reader philosophically and to specify the issues at stake; it also lacks notes giving the meanings of technical terms and comparing the exposition to Aristotle's own text. There is, however, a rather extensive index. The publication of this volume intensifies the historical problem whether commentaries such as this accurately (...)

    Aristotle’s Theory of the Will. [REVIEW]L. C. - 1980 - Review of Metaphysics 34 (1):144-145.
    This book forms part of a larger argument begun by Kenny in his The Aristotelian Ethics, and its importance can only be properly appreciated in the light of the view developed there of the relationship of the various Aristotelian ethical treatises. In the earlier book Kenny argues, contrary to the present consensus of scholarly opinion, that the Eudemian Ethics has at least as good a claim as the Nicomachean Ethics to being considered the canonical ethical work of Aristotle. He attempts (...)

    Whitehead’s Metaphysics. [REVIEW]L. C. - 1976 - Review of Metaphysics 29 (3):551-552.
    The approach taken in this introductory exposition of the philosophy of Whitehead’s later period is based upon the view that both the basic questions and the procedure of his earlier investigations in the philosophy of science had changed. Whereas before he had been concerned with problems lying essentially within the domain of theoretical physics, Whitehead came to see that an adequate response to his questions about the post-Newtonian concept of nature leads to the still more general kind of question that (...)

    The increasing complexity of physical theory has magnified one of the most important educational problems of our time: how to communicate the results of modern science to those whose mode of life they condition, the general public. Can it be done effectively without distortions due to popularization? This volume suggests an affirmative answer. The basic ideas of Newtonian and quantum mechanics, relativity theory and atomic physics are presented clearly and simply, yet without reliance on difficult mathematics and without substituting journalism (...)

    The Uses of Argument. [REVIEW]L. C. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (4):697-697.
    Searching for a middle ground between psychologism and formalism, Toulmin argues that logic is the critical science or art of appraising arguments. Formal logic, by grounding itself upon an analytic conception of validity, is merely a reflection of the classical quest for certainty. But, Toulmin holds, in respect to actual arguments, which, in most fields, are substantial rather than analytic, such a conception is pointless and indicative of a fruitless and problem causing attitude toward the relation between theory and practise.--C.

    Concepts of Criticism. [REVIEW]L. B. C. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (2):382-382.
    A collection of fourteen essays, three of them previously unpublished, which manages to be both indispensable and unsatisfying. Wellek surveys methods of criticism in Europe and America, then outlines the conceptual ideals that ought to be followed. Wellek's belief in literature as a structure of norms, as imaginative writing concerned with values, will be familiar from his earlier Theory of Literature. Theoretically speaking, literary study has been muddled; the hope for it lies in applying period concepts, by approaching literature as (...)

    Philosophy of Science. [REVIEW]L. C. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):716-716.
    An analysis of science oriented towards logical positivism. The emphasis throughout is upon psychology and the behavioral sciences although Newtonian mechanics is, in one section, selected for a detailed analysis. The title is somewhat misleading, since the interest the book displays is somewhat specialized. This is a philosophy of science rather than a general discussion of the main problems and solutions.--C. L.

The series provides an historical purview for the beginner, brief but accurate, interspersed with critical evaluation from a modern analytic point of view. Huby's volume on Greek Ethics is more expository than evaluative in nature, with most attention directed toward Plato and Aristotle. Some of the virtues of the volume, in spite of the lack (...)

    An epistemological discussion of the cognitive claims of religious, especially Christian, faith. Assuming that God exists, how can He be known? Faith is an act of interpreting the world, having much in common with sensory and moral interpretation. The assertions it gives rise to are meaningful, even within an empiricist criterion. God reveals himself only indirectly in order to preserve man's freedom and responsibility.--C. L.

    The Novelist as Philosopher. [REVIEW]L. B. C. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (1):170-171.
    The assumption underlying this collection of essays is that recent developments in philosophy and fiction have brought them closer than they have been. Novelists' insights into the ambiguity of experience, and, at the same time, philosophy's trend towards concreteness in such areas as phenomenology, point to areas of rapprochement. What the novel can do, philosophically speaking, is to formulate "the initial stages of... metaphysical thinking," and "carry out an imaginative or emotional exploration of a system of thought." In his introduction, (...)

Lévi-Strauss believes almost every theory explaining the relation held to exist between man and certain natural objects can be demolished: there seems to be no general biological or cultural framework which can account for totemism as an isolated phenomenon. But if totemism is seen as a way of thinking metaphorically, of correlating opposites, or of associating by contrariety then it becomes an example of a mode of thinking common to (...)

    An urbanely written dialogue which convincingly demonstrates the "compartmentalized" character of a number of modern cosmologies. The implications and inconsistencies of biological and physical views of nature, space and time take up the first part of the book; the second turns to an examination of a Steineresque mysticism, a puzzling emphasis since the objections raised to it in the text itself are never satisfactorily answered.

    A detailed scholarly history of natural science during the centuries when the modern scientific attitude was formed. The author is specially interested in contrasting Greek and medieval science with the modern. While stating some of the continuities between the old and the new conceptions of nature, he sees modern science as making a decisive break with the procedures and theories of the past. Its chief advances, among others, were the removal of magic and esoteric mystery from science, and its insistence (...)

He presents a detailed exposition and criticism of the Marxist theory of knowledge, ontology, ethics, and doctrine of historical materialism. The expository sections are unusually clear and draw upon materials not easily available to English speaking readers. The criticisms are detailed, rigorous, and, even when not convincing, provocative. The chief merit of the book is that the author does (...)
