    The Educational Philosophy of Saint Thomas Aquinas. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (2):373-373.
    A restatement of Thomistic educational philosophy designed to counter "progressive education." The author's polemical intentions color his entire study: Not only is Dewey treated unsympathetically, but elements in St. Thomas' thought with which Dewey would have agreed are de-emphasized.—R. J.

    Opera, Tomus I. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (3):591-591.
    In 1951 these editors began publication of a monumental critical edition of Plotinus' works. Now Oxford is making available a slightly revised editio minor in its series of classical texts. The textual revision is accompanied by a long list of variants. Thus this text, which includes Porphyry's life of Plotinus and Enneads I-III, supersedes the earlier editio major. The critical apparatus is considerably reduced, but should prove adequate to all but serious textual scholars. This edition will probably remain the standard (...)

    A good selection from St. Augustine's writings, organized topically. Many passages are brief, but they are carefully ordered to present a coherent picture. The price one pays for this approach is the loss of a sense of Augustine's development.—R. J. W.

    Symbolic Logic and Language: A Programmed Text.R. J. W. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (3):585-585.
    One might intuitively expect that logic would lend itself to programmed teaching. This text shows that it does. The authors have provided a carefully worked out program for the propositional calculus. Considerable emphasis is placed on the intuitive plausibility of moves. The student is first introduced to Principia Mathematica notation, then shown the advantages of Polish, which is used throughout the remainder of the text. The program includes techniques for discovering proofs and a thorough discussion of validity.—R. J. W.

    A collection of Bainton's shorter papers on the Reformation period, some extensively revised. Most of the essays deal with either Luther or the "Left Wing" of the Reformation. Whether the topic is "The Struggle for Religious Liberty," or "Luther on Birds, Dogs, and Babies," Bainton maintains a high level of scholarship and style.—R. J. W.

    Plato and the Individual. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (4):775-775.
    This careful and thorough study should lay to rest the charge that Plato allowed the individual no good of his own, but subordinated him entirely to the state. Virtue is within the reach of every man, not just the philosopher. Hall argues that the early Socratic dialogues show a progressive rejection of utilitarianism, and that Plato consistently maintained the position that virtue is valuable in itself. He persuasively draws on the distinction between knowledge and true opinion to show that there (...)

    The University in Process. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (2):382-383.
    In this, the 1965 Aquinas Lecture, Dr. Riedl examines the future of universities in the light of three basic discrepancies between their historical functions and present roles: loss of their status as sole agency for the advancement of learning, loss of their function as educator of clerics, and loss of their role as sole arbiters of professional education and standards. He concludes that we need a theory of administration that allows decentralization of control without compartmentalization, a theory of creativity in (...)

    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 Logic of Self-Involvement.R. J. W. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (2):372-372.
    "And God said...." The author of this interesting study takes seriously the use of the italicized word in the biblical account of Creation. His thesis is that a modified version of the late J. L. Austin's analysis of "performatory" language can be used to reinterpret the traditional Christian claim that God "created" the world. The first half of the book is a purely philosophical analysis of self-involving language. Of particular importance is its clear distinction between, and logical mapping of, performative (...)

    Recollections of Socrates and Socrates' Defense before the Jury. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (1):162-163.
    This new translation makes Xenophon's interpretation of Socrates readily available for the first time in a low-priced edition. With the exception of unnecessarily literal repetitions of "by Zeus," the translation is smooth. The introduction is somewhat restricted in its usefulness by the assumption that those who condemned Socrates could not have understood what they were doing and by a tendency to blur differences between Plato's and Xenophon's portraits of Socrates.—R.

    The De Grammatico of St. Anselm: The Theory of Paronymy. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):153-153.
    Those who know only Anselm the theologian would do well to spend some time with this extremely thorough study of his most famous logical treatise. The author provides a synopsis, a new edition of the text, a new translation, an informal exposition, and a formal one using the logic of Lesniewski. His thesis is that the De Grammatico is a careful and subtle examination of the theory of paronymy, or, in modern terms, the problem of sense and reference. Anselm's work (...)

  30. Plato's Republic: A Philosophical Commentary. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (4):773-774.
    The Republic is here treated as an introduction to philosophy. The authors systematically summarize and criticize the various topics and arguments Plato used. No line-by-line scholarly commentary is attempted; rather the emphasis is on the philosophical importance and truth of Plato's arguments. Unfortunately the result of this approach is that the Republic becomes an introduction to the British brand of philosophical analysis, rather than to Plato's philosophy. Literary form and dramatic situation are virtually ignored, and with them Plato's conception of (...)

    Here is Plotinus in a truly useful form; useful, that is, for teachers of the history of philosophy who have felt uneasy at having to omit one of the seminal figures in its development. Ten treatises are included, each in its entirety, conveying the complexity of Plotinus' thought surprisingly well. One can find little fault with either selection or translation. In addition, the editor has provided a good introduction, notes on Plotinus' sources, an appendix of related readings, a glossary, and (...)

  35. T. S. Eliot: The Metaphysical Perspective. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (4):635-636.
    Eliot once wrote a doctoral dissertation on F. H. Bradley. This book attempts to use the philosophy to gain insight into the early poetry and criticism, and uses the conjunction of these to interpret Eliot's artistic and intellectual development. The resulting theory is applied in an extended discussion of Burnt Norton. This three-pronged approach to Eliot is fruitful; it would have been better had it not slighted the theological dimension of his poetry.--R. J. W.

    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.

  38. Plato: The Founder of Philosophy as Dialectic. [REVIEW]J. W. R. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):156-156.
    Although the author closes this book with Whitehead's famous comment that European philosophy is "a series of footnotes to Plato," his thesis is that Hegel's footnotes are the right ones. "Dialectic" here means the dynamic reconciliation of opposites. The question of whether dialectic might have had some other meaning for Plato is not raised. Hegelian jargon is used throughout, without explanation, e.g.: "There are two movements in the Philebus: In the first part, the Substance, World itself, becomes Subject aware of (...)

    These volumes contain a selection of Morgenthau's articles, speeches, etc., written over the past two decades. Some of the material has been re-written, either to bring it up to date or to fit it better into the plan of this work. Morgenthau has not simply collected some old essays; he has coherently combined essays on political philosophy with comment on concrete political issues in which the practical consequences of his theory are spelled out. His version of political realism is clearly (...)

    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.

    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 (...)

    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.

This book is arranged by topics, which include the nature of philosophy, ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of religion, social philosophy, aesthetics and the philosophy of science. At least one contemporary philosopher is represented within almost every category. The readings are brief, and are chosen more to bring specific problems into focus than to be representative of their authors.—R. J. W.

    A clear, well-written, but overly rapid introduction to Kroner's philosophical system. There is a brief biography and a good bibliography. The exposition proper is done in only eighty-eight pages, and in spite of good organization and careful writing gives a skeletal structure without sufficient flesh. Read along with one or more of Kroner's works, this book would help one to see how particular ideas fit into the larger system.--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.

    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".

    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 (...)
