    Galileo's Claim to Fame: The Proof that the Earth Moves From the Evidence of the Tides.W. R. J. Shea - 1970 - British Journal for the History of Science 5 (2):111-127.
    Until fairly recently a common way of doing history of science was to pick up an important strand of contemporary scientific thought and to trace its origin back to the philosophical tangle of the scientific revolution. This approach conveniently by-passed the breakdowns of once useful and pervasive theories, and neglected the long intellectual journeys along devious routes. History of science read like a success story; the pioneers who failed were neither dismissed nor excused; they were simply ignored. The historian knew (...)

    Coherent EEG indicators of cognitive binding during ambiguous figure tasks.W. R. Klemm, T. H. Li & J. L. Hernandez - 2000 - Consciousness and Cognition 9 (1):66-85.
    We tested the hypothesis that perception of an alternative image in ambiguous figures would be manifest as high-frequency (gamma) components that become synchronized over multiple scalp sites as a ''cognitive binding'' process occurs. For 171 combinations of data from 19 electrodes, obtained from 17 subjects and 10 replicate stimuli, we calculated the difference in correlation between the response to first seeing an ambiguous figure and when the alternative percept for that figure became consciously realized (cognitively bound). Numerous statistically significant correlation (...)

    The Bible has influenced contemporary culture both positively and negatively. The present volume is a collection of papers that were discussed at an international colloquium on the use of the Bible in Ethics in the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield in April 1995. Participants came from many parts of the world and from different backgrounds, and the papers reflect their varied interests and the contexts in which they work. The contributors, in addition to the three editors, (...)

  21. Should informed consent be based on rational beliefs?J. Savulescu & R. W. Momeyer - 1997 - Journal of Medical Ethics 23 (5):282-288.
    Our aim is to expand the regulative ideal governing consent. We argue that consent should not only be informed but also based on rational beliefs. We argue that holding true beliefs promotes autonomy. Information is important insofar as it helps a person to hold the relevant true beliefs. But in order to hold the relevant true beliefs, competent people must also think rationally. Insofar as information is important, rational deliberation is important. Just as physicians should aim to provide relevant information (...)

    Art and Philosophy. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (1):163-163.
    The product of the seventh symposium of New York University's Institute of Philosophy, this volume centers on three topics: grounds for judgment of artistic excellence, interpretation of meaning in art criticism, and art and reality. Each of the three sections features a lead paper, followed by a series of comments. Issues raised by the main papers are quite thoroughly explored, but sometimes one wishes that provocative suggestions made in commentary were taken up by other participants.—R. J. W.

    A Critical History of Western Philosophy. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (2):389-389.
    This volume is based on a sharp distinction between the history of philosophy and the history of ideas. Its essays on the major philosophers of past and present make little attempt to trace historical connections, but rather concentrate on exposition and criticism. In general the individual authors are experts on the philosophers they discuss, and the level of the exposition is high. Most of the contributors are British, and practitioners of the method of linguistic analysis. This gives the volume a (...)

    A Commentary on Plato's Meno. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):155-155.
    For many years scholars have paid lip service to the "dramatic" or "mimetic" character of Plato's dialogues, but too few have taken this character seriously. Klein does, making it the basis of his exposition. He convincingly demonstrates that the dramatic action and the topic discussed are tightly interwoven and must be taken together to understand the Meno. In his introduction he distinguishes three kinds of mimesis: ethological, doxological, and mythological. The Meno is interpreted as primarily ethological. But one can ask (...)

    Probabilistic Logic and Probabilistic Networks. Haenni, R., Romeijn, J.-W., Wheeler, G. & Williamson, J. - unknown
    While in principle probabilistic logics might be applied to solve a range of problems, in practice they are rarely applied at present. This is perhaps because they seem disparate, complicated, and computationally intractable. However, we shall argue in this programmatic paper that several approaches to probabilistic logic into a simple unifying framework: logically complex evidence can be used to associate probability intervals or probabilities with sentences.

    Evaluating ethics competence in medical education.J. Savulescu, R. Crisp, K. W. Fulford & T. Hope - 1999 - Journal of Medical Ethics 25 (5):367-374.
    We critically evaluate the ways in which competence in medical ethics has been evaluated. We report the initial stage in the development of a relevant, reliable and valid instrument to evaluate core critical thinking skills in medical ethics. This instrument can be used to evaluate the impact of medical ethics education programmes and to assess whether medical students have achieved a satisfactory level of performance of core skills and knowledge in medical ethics, within and across institutions.

    Christian Faith and Greek Philosophy. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (1):170-170.
    A well-written introductory and historical survey of the dialogue between Christianity and philosophy, with primary emphasis on the early Fathers, Augustine and Aquinas. Although the preface suggests that the dialogue is a continuing one, many of the essays treat it as ending with Aquinas. One wishes that more account had been taken of modern criticism of the early theological development and of modern Biblical theology. The last two chapters do this and are helped by it.—R. J. W.

    By restricting the subject matter of this anthology to creativity, the editor has succeeded in assembling a good and useful book. Essays by philosophers are combined with some by artists. The result is a fairly clear statement of the issues, and of a number of differing, though related, solutions.--R. J. W.

    Condemned to Meaning. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):159-159.
    This seventh John Dewey Lecture brings together the existentialist concern for "the meaning of life" with the analytical interest in precision in linguistic meanings. The treatment is provocative, though schematic. A brief analysis of "the meaning of life" is given, and then applied to education with considerable insight.—R. J. W.

    A lively and sympathetic critique of the ecumenical movement, emphasizing that unity is a Christian goal only as it contributes to the Church's ability to fulfill its mission. There is a good discussion of the significance of Roman Catholic and Orthodox participation in what was originally a Protestant movement. Marty's thesis is that enough unity has been attained now to get on with the mission.--R. J. W.

  33. Daniel: Dialogues on Realization. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (4):773-773.
    Those who find Buber's mature works, especially I and Thou, difficult will benefit from this early book. In it one can see Buber struggling with the same problems in a way which focuses them more clearly than in later works, even if the solution is less satisfactory. The translation is lucid, and the introduction is a substantial essay which provides an excellent entrée to Buber's thought, as well as to this book.—R. J. W.

The introduction points out, but deliberately avoids settling, questions raised by the dialogue, allowing Plato to speak for himself.—R. J. W.

    Ethics and Science. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (2):380-380.
    Lest one be misled by the title, this book is not a study of the social responsibilities of scientists. It is a careful, provocative argument that the formal structures of scientific theory and ethical theory are analogous. The most interesting and far-reaching analogy developed by Dr. Margenau is between the fundamental postulates of theoretical science and the primary values of ethics. The author argues that primary values cannot be derived from something else, but must be postulated. He further sees an (...)

    The authors have attempted a sustained exploration of the cluster of problems involved in the relationship between Christian faith and intellectual integrity. They alternate brief essays, each picking up where the other left off. The latter sections tend to become somewhat technical for a book intended for use by undergraduate students, but there is some fruitful philosophical encounter which could make this book useful in courses in the philosophy of religion.--R.

    Faith and Prejudice. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 16 (4):806-806.
    By studying church-school lesson materials of four Protestant denominations, the author explores the relationship between religious faith and prejudice. The book is divided into a summary and interpretation of the study and a more technical discussion of the methods of the study. One interesting result of the study is a qualification and partial denial of the thesis of the authors of The Authoritarian Personality, that religious faith and ethnic and religious bigotry are interrelated.--R.

    Forms in Plato's Later Dialogues. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (1):160-161.
    The author attempts to show that Plato continued to hold his theory of Forms in his later period by arguing that analysis of the late dialogues reveals their assumed existence. The objects of knowledge considered in the later dialogues have the basic traits attributed to the Forms in the middle and early dialogues. The Forms are not known by "intuition" or "acquaintance," but as that which is required for λόγος. The result of this approach is a kind of Kantian interpretation (...)

    History, Archaeology, and Christian Humanism. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (2):378-378.
    The first of a series of volumes containing Albright's shorter writings, some never before published, and the rest revised. In this volume Albright develops his philosophy of history more explicitly than elsewhere, elaborating his distinction between proto-logical, empirico-logical and logical levels of thought. He is very critical of philosophical system-building, especially of the idealistic type, and he sharply contrasts post-Kantian developments in epistemology with what he regards to be the correct epistemology of history. In addition to these broad considerations, there (...)

    History and Future of Religious Thought. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (4):624-624.
    The author maintains that for each of these religions, the present tendency toward a global culture requires: 1) a return to fundamental themes, distinguishing these from cultural accretions, and 2) the exploration of the extent to which these four religions share themes, e.g., the idea of the revelation of the Divine in all of human history. Unfortunately, this book does not contribute much to this project. The separate discussions of each religion do not give enough of the content of the (...)

    Knowledge and Experience in the Philosophy of F. H. Bradley. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (2):381-381.
    Eliot wrote this book as his Ph.D. dissertation in 1916, and has allowed it to be published "as a curiosity of biographical interest." It is not difficult to move from his insistence in the thesis on the continuity of ideality and reality, of word and object, to his poetry and criticism. Precisely because of this insistence, Eliot's thesis is of more than merely biographical interest. As a work in philosophy it has a strikingly contemporary ring. E.g., "Without words, no objects".

    The editor attempts to give unity to this anthology by a humanistic orientation, i.e., by labeling the main sections "Man and Philosophy," "Man and Nature," "Man and His Fellow Men," etc. Although this is largely a terminological device, it does have the result that the book does not try to cover the entire philosophical map. The essays are chosen to represent types of thought, and a number of philosophers not often represented in such anthologies are included.—R. J. W.

    A survey of the history of the ideal of a balance between man and nature in America, this book outlines the development of the conservation movement and summarizes the thinking of such men as Thoreau. One misses a critical discussion of the men and ideas opposed by the conservationists, e.g., Carnegie. The discussion of contemporary problems, the population-explosion and the arms race, is provocative but less careful and well-documented than the rest of the book.—R. J. W.

    An examination of secular attempts—literary, psychiatric, and philosophical—to come to terms with death. The author assumes that for most moderns, apparently including himself, religious solutions are not viable alternatives. His knowledge of Western literature on the subject is vast, and he provides extensive bibliography and notes. Critical analysis is often schematic, however. There is also an inclination to substitute psychoanalysis of an author for argument against his theories. Ironically, the primary impressions left by this book are, first, the inadequacy of (...)

    A Thomistic analysis of human nature which attempts to show how modern discoveries in physiology and physiological psychology are consistent with St. Thomas' teachings. The author indicates in the preface that he has written this book to show that modern forms of empiricism and materialism are not logical consequences of modern science. Unfortunately, the text itself ignores the challenge of recent trends in philosophy rather than engaging them in critical encounter.—R. J. W.
