    Tractatus 2.0201–2.0212.William Gustason - 1975 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 4 (3):515 - 527.
    It is generally agreed that these passages are among the most important to be found in the Tractatus; they give the gist of Wittgenstein 's argument for his atomistic ontology as well as the crucial notion of propositional analysis. It is surprising therefore that most discussions of these entries are cursory and fail to set out the argument in detail.

    Ascent to Truth: A Critical Examination of Quine's Philosophy. [REVIEW]William Gustason - 1987 - Review of Metaphysics 41 (2):388-389.
    Gochet's book is the latest in an attempt to explain and examine some of the controversial themes in Quine's philosophy. Gochet describes himself as sharing Quine's general standpoint, and hence his critical remarks are mainly "internal" ones, "pointing out the stresses, strains, and inner tensions which reveal themselves as soon as one tries to put together Quine's sundry doctrines and positions.".

    English Language Philosophy 1750-1945. [REVIEW]William Gustason - 1994 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (2):426-428.
    This is the sixth volume of the Opus series on the history of western philosophy. It is not intended for the novice but for readers who already have at least some familiarity with philosophical issues. Of necessity, some philosophers who did not write in English are covered; Frege of course is discussed and, more briefly, some of the late nineteenth-century scientist-philosophers like Mach and Poincaré. Because of the pervasive influence of Kant, brief and rather sketchy accounts of the "critical philosophy" (...)

    The Interpretation of Frege's Philosophy. [REVIEW]William Gustason - 1983 - Review of Metaphysics 36 (3):706-709.
    This is a book with curious origins, one that Dummett says he wrote "without meaning to." It is the result of a failed attempt to supply an introduction for the second edition of his outstanding work, Frege: Philosophy of Language. In surveying the reaction to the first edition, Dummett was struck by the diversity of interpretations of Frege, and since that edition contained little by way of justification of his own reading, he felt that an introduction to the second edition (...)
