    Factor T. [REVIEW]S. L. W. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (1):169-169.
    Two brief essays, one on ethics, the other on beliefs, are presented in the form of short allegories and connecting comments. The approach is that of contemporary British analysis, and the style has a refreshing novelty. Several Thurber-like cartoons and a "Somatic Sonata" complete this brief volume.--W. S. L.

    Gramsci's Philosophy. [REVIEW]S. W. W. - 1982 - Review of Metaphysics 35 (4):888-889.
    The present volume may be regarded as a sound introduction to Gramsci's philosophy. The work focuses primarily upon the Prison Notebooks from which Nemeth attempts to reveal Gramsci's "formidable epistemology" which is presumably phenomenological in character. According to Nemeth, "Gramsci's great originality within the Marxist tradition lies in his adumbration of a transcendental, indeed a phenomenological perspective". It seems highly peculiar that Husserl's ideas should be appropriated in a study that highlights a distinctive Italian philosophy of praxis. Nemeth's numerous references (...)

    Love in the Western World. [REVIEW]S. L. W. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (3):544-545.
    A consideration of one of the perennial paradoxes of Western society, which upholds monogamous marriage as the ethical norm, and yet is forever fascinated by romantic passion outside of marriage. The treatment of this fascination by the medieval legend of Tristan and Iseult, and the subsequent reappearance of this legend or its theme in Western literature down to the present, is examined. A theory of the eros-agape dichotomy is developed. The author concludes that the appeal of extra-attachment is illusory.--W. S. (...)

    George Berkeley: Lectures Delivered Before the Philosophical Union of the University of California. [REVIEW]S. L. W. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (2):354-354.
    A collection of lectures given in commemoration of the bicentennial of Berkeley's death, this work bears testimony to a renewed interest in his philosophy. The basic tenets of Berkelian idealism are defended as possessing contemporary validity and tenability, and Berkeley is shown to have anticipated much of present day philosophy. -- W. S. L.

    La Source des Valeurs. [REVIEW]S. L. W. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (2):351-351.
    The first volume of a projected trilogy on the problem of value, this essay advances two main theses: that liberty is the necessary precondition for all value, and that values arise out of intersubjective relationships. In these relationships there is a dialectical movement enabling values to transcend their original subjective natures and become progressively objectified. --W. S. L.

    Methods and Criteria of Reasoning: An Inquiry Into the Structure of Controversy. [REVIEW]S. L. W. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (3):513-513.
    This work, written well within the tradition of contemporary British analysis, attempts to cope with the question of why most philosophical problems, as well as many problems concerning the foundations of the sciences, have not yet been laid to rest. The author holds that most of these problems could be disposed of simply by stating the problem in such a way as would clearly indicate the means or lack of means by which the statement could be tested. --W. S. L.

    Studies in Arabic Philosophy. [REVIEW]S. W. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 24 (4):755-755.
    Collected in this volume are ten essays on Islamic philosophy, some of which have appeared before. The topics range from historical observations on the Islamic-European transmission of ideas to detailed examinations of Arabic developments in logic. The most comprehensive discussion of the latter concerns the theory of temporal modalities as found in Avicenna, al-Qazwini al-Katibi, et al. Of much wider interest is the inquiry into the Arabic concern with the notion of "existence." The author surprises the reader here by pointing (...)

    On Philosophical Method. [REVIEW]S. W. - 1981 - Review of Metaphysics 35 (2):370-372.
    Castañeda offers a linguistically anchored approach to ontology entitled empirical semantico-syntactical structuralism. The entry to phenomenological ontology, or primary ontology, is natural language semantico-syntactical contrasts within given idiolects. The order of ontological inquiry, whose analogy with scientific method is stressed, is the following: 1) Proto-philosophy involves collecting and exegesizing empirical and semantico-syntactical data. 2) Sym-philosophy consists of hypothesizing connections between such data, proposing a theory concerning a given pattern, testing a theory by deduction concerning its ad hoc validity, establishing its (...)

    Descartes: The Arguments of the Philosophers. [REVIEW]S. W. - 1979 - Review of Metaphysics 32 (4):779-781.
    Margaret Wilson’s study of the Meditations traces Descartes’ replacement of Aristotelian Scholasticism by an "anti-empiricist metaphysics, a form of ’scientific realism'". Medits. 1 and 2 are seen as methodic preparations. A causal interpretation of the doubt is proposed, whereby "all truth-conferring connection between perceptions or beliefs and their causes" is severed. Wilson distinguishes the malign spirit from God, but since she accords them equivalent power the doubt extends through sensed particulars to simple universals. The probabilist reinstatement of external bodies via (...)

    Schouls argues that seventeenth century thinkers thought knowledge in any area demanded application of a unitary method. Method is imposed upon subject-matter since the method of resolution and composition are the essence of reasoning.
