    Humanist Without Portfolio. [REVIEW]A. E. S. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (1):186-186.
    This represents the first modern translation of any of the writings of von Humboldt and the only introduction to his works in English. Included are many of his reflections on history, religion and politics, the latter being of special interest. On the whole, the translation is readable and the problems discussed, though somewhat dated, are of interest to those concerned with the perennial problems of the philosophies of man and culture.—S. A E.

    A clear statement centering on the ramifications of the thought of Heidegger and Bultman [[sic]] for various theological problems. Macquarrie also discusses Teilhard de Chardin and Karl Rahner in a reasonably sympathetic way. While possibly of use as an accurate introduction to the subject-matter, the book fails to be philosophically or religiously illuminating.--S. A. S.

    The Concept of Identity. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1969 - Review of Metaphysics 23 (2):343-344.
    A careful, wide-ranging but basically unilluminating study of the medical, philosophical, and psychological literature on the concept of identity, beginning with Descartes and dwelling on Erik Erickson, who has pursued William James' approach to the problem. Erickson has investigated group identity in two Indian cultures, its connection with the ideals of the individual, and the development of this connection in the child. The middle of the book is an intermezzo which discusses Ovid's Metamorphoses and W. F. Hermans' The Dark Room (...)

    The Field of Consciousness. [REVIEW]A. E. S. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (1):175-175.
    Gurwitsch's concern in this book is with the doing of phenomenology rather than the explication of what other phenomenologists have done. His analyses of Husserl's views, with whom he appears to be in close agreement, are in the service of the concrete phenomenological analyses Gurwitsch himself undertakes. His remarks on William James serve as a further corroboration of the interest practicing phenomenologists are taking in James' thought and the phenomenological strains which run through it. What emerges in Gurwitsch's own thought (...)

    A popular reworking and extension of the works of Prescott Lecky, forerunner of the "third force" in American psychology, known variously as humanistic, perceptual, transactionist, existential. While the book is highly readable, full of good advice, and pointed in the right direction, it is not even remotely adequate to the difficulty of the subject matter. However, the treatment of coming-into-existence is sensitive.--S. A. S.

    Method in Ethical Theory. [REVIEW]A. E. S. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (1):173-173.
    The underlying assumption of this book is that "speeding up the process of securing maximal contributions from ethical theory for solving moral problems involves the fullest self-conscious focusing on method." With clarity and insight the author explores various ethical theories and their relationships to one another, trying always to bring about an understanding of what is truly at stake in various theoretical controversies and to relate ethical theory to the business of morality itself.—S.

    The Concept of Prayer. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (2):376-377.
    Phillips contends that the disrepute into which philosophy of religion has fallen is the fault of the many philosophers who, instead of investigating the meaning of prayer in its religious context, have approached religious language in a literal, unimaginative, and insensitive way. To remedy this, he carefully analyzes what the believer is doing, in order to find the "depth grammar" of religious statements. In the process he draws uncritically on Simone Weil's account of prayer as effacement of the self before (...)

    Crocker's book is a continuation of his study of French intellectual history of the enlightenment period. In an earlier volume he dealt primarily with theories of human nature, metaphysics and psychology. Here his concern is with moral experience and values. Crocker traces the advance of utilitarianism and nihilism as they undermined the traditional solutions to man's moral problems, viz., Christianity and Natural Law. He shows how the political theories of the France of the eighteenth century were shaped by metaphysical and (...)

Professor Judah has personally participated in a number of the movements and hence his approach is reasonably sympathetic, although his general attitude is that of a liberal Protestant. He successfully demonstrates not only the tremendous variety of doctrines and personalities active in the above groups, but also indicates the substantial agreement in major areas. The book (...)

    Kenneth Patton, a Unitarian minister, presents us with a celebration of the world in rambling free verse. Unfortunately, the reader wearies of the highly self-conscious, epigrammatic, and didactic approach. As poetry the book fails. It fares better if approached as a testimony to Mr. Patton's powerful convictions of the oneness of men with each other and the cosmos, of the essentially creative, joyful, and wondrous nature of human life. "Creator" deserves special mention for its rare, anti-Nietzschean insight into the way (...)

    Dr. Littleton's book is valuable as a brief but stimulating introduction for the non-scientific layman to various physical data. However, the author's central purpose is to demonstrate that science and religion are compatible by using these data as proof that "science" recognizes the infinite. While some enlightening points are made, Dr. Littleton vitiates his main purpose by making highly problematic philosophical statements with no reasoned support at all.—S. A. S.

    Dr. Williams first focuses on human faith, the creative power which seeks to change possibilities into actualities, and then extrapolates "God," a limited, struggling, experimenting teleological force in the universe as a whole, a force which can be addressed either as "Thou" or "It." Faith is not something which men can consciously control, not mere fancy, but a quasi-objective force which can control a man if he allows it to do so. The comments on problems such as the place of (...)

    A concise look at the present "revolt" in both the Protestant and Catholic churches, a revolt hopefully leading to the radical re-structuring of the church so that it may serve today's "secular age," an age freed from thinking imposed "from above". Man in the secular age refuses to separate out a piece of life and call it sacred or religious, but instead sees Christ at work in "the events of our time," and struggles with him against destructive forces.

    Emotion in the Thought of Sartre. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (2):376-376.
    The dream of graduate students: an excellent dissertation which developed into an excellent book--scholarly, complete, and unbiased. Sartre's central claims are that emotional response is intentional, signifying an object evaluated, and an emotional response is an act, a chosen response which attempts to "magically" transform a situation too difficult for ordinary instrumental solutions. Fell accepts Sartre's first thesis, but argues that the chosen action and self-deception of the second thesis are not definitive of all emotions, but are rather partially explanatory (...)

Schipper, in this lucid and scholarly study of the Parmenides, Theaetetus, Sophist, Philebus, and Timaeus, maintains that Plato continues to assume the essentials of the earlier doctrine of forms, and that while he offers no complete and explicit answer to the second question, the later dialogues do provide clues which are consistent (...)

    A closely reasoned, although overly long study of the somewhat less than revolutionary contributions of Moore, Stevenson, Toulmin, and Hare to meta-ethical theorizing. The final chapter moves beyond commentary to a balanced analysis of the problems of analyzing moral language. Kerner argues, following Austin, that the bifurcation of moral language into description and evaluation is crude and misleading. Rather, moral judgments differ from descriptive utterances because of their characteristic "performative force," their use or function. Hence moral philosophy properly does not (...)

    These essays do a rather thorough and sometimes exciting job of articulating the encounter between Christianity and contemporary philosophies of existence. Earle, representing the "opposition," puts the case for Nietzsche and Sartre quite convincingly. Edie's treatment of Heidegger might have been more subtle and suffers from the closeness with which Edie links Heidegger with Tillich. Wild's essays, without a doubt the most interesting but most perplexing in the collection, appear to be at once orthodox and revolutionary, with an overall Bultmannian (...)

However, he maintains that religious language is nonetheless meaningful when seen in its context of encounter and commitment so that verification occurs in the determination of life.
