    Principles of Biomedical Ethics. [REVIEW]E. M. W. - 1982 - Review of Metaphysics 35 (3):590-592.
    Beauchamp and Childress here collaborate to provide a set of action-guides or principles which in their judgment apply to a wide range of biomedical problems. Their work consists of eight chapters and two appendices. In the first two chapters attention centers on the nature of a moral dilemma and moral reasoning and on types of normative ethical theories. Chapters 3 through 6 discuss the principles of autonomy, nonmaleficence, beneficence, and justice, while chapters 7 and 8 deal, respectively, with the professional-patient (...)

    A Companion to the Study of St. Anselm. [REVIEW]E. M. W. - 1973 - Review of Metaphysics 27 (2):390-391.
    The title of Hopkins’ book is apt in at least two ways. First, it is a "companion"—a book which is best read in conjunction with a serious reading of Anselm’s works. Hopkins states that his book is "envisioned primarily as a handbook for students", but that is true in the sense that Taylor’s book on Plato or Gilson’s books on Augustine, Bonaventure, and Aquinas could be said to be intended for students. Secondly, it is a study of practically all of (...)

    The Achievement of Bernard Lonergan. [REVIEW]E. M. W. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (3):571-572.
    Bernard Lonergan is a Jesuit philosopher-theologian whose work is having an increasing influence, particularly on those concerned with identifying the nature of theological reflection and its relation to other areas of human inquiry. The purpose of this volume is to introduce a broader philosophical and theological audience to the world of Lonergan's thought. This world is principally characterized by Lonergan's notion of horizon-analysis. Perhaps the best way to explain what this means is to link it to Lonergan's view that man (...)

    Human Dignity and Human Numbers. [REVIEW]E. M. W. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (3):568-569.
    This volume by a political scientist has important implications for the philosopher, in particular the ethicist. Schall recognizes the urgency for men to come to grips intelligently and realistically with the issues associated with population control and ecology, but he argues that the central issue at stake is the meaning of man himself. Schall argues that in general in the western philosophical tradition nature is not its own norm but serves a necessary though functional relation to man. Man is the (...)

    An Introduction to Western Philosophy. [REVIEW]E. M. W. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (3):553-554.
    Subtitled "Ideas and Arguments from Plato to Sartre," this volume is intended, as are many others, to serve both as a textbook for introductory courses in philosophy and as an introduction to philosophic thinking. One of its goals, and one admirably achieved, is to provide some hearing both to all the very greatest figures in the history of western philosophy and to some major opposing traditions. No one can read the volume and fail to grasp something of the content and (...)

    Process Theology. [REVIEW]E. M. W. - 1972 - Review of Metaphysics 26 (1):155-156.
    This anthology is intended primarily to provide students of theology with some of the basic writings of the major thinkers who have contributed to the development of the movement known as "process theology." Because of the content students of philosophy will likewise find it useful. The editor begins the work with an introduction in which he ably traces in broad perspective the various ways in which a mental attitude stressing process is reflected in contemporary culture, philosophy, and theology. The first (...)

    Beyond the New Morality: The Responsibilities of Freedom. [REVIEW]E. M. W. - 1974 - Review of Metaphysics 27 (4):795-795.
    In this intelligently constructed and clearly written work readers will discover a worthwhile discussion of man as a moral being. Central to the position developed by the authors is the notion that men are capable of freely determining their own lives through their own choices. The work begins by analyzing the notion of freedom and by distinguishing the freedom of self-determination, the basic freedom that makes man to be a moral being, from other types of freedom, e.g., freedom from external (...)
