Impetus and Equipoise in the Life-Strategies of Reason: Logos and Life Book 4 [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 56 (2):463-464 (2002)

With this fourth volume in her Logos and Life series, Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka offers a monumental, comprehensive philosophical system, the likes of which have not been hitherto attempted since the metaphysics of Henri Bergson and Alfred North Whitehead. Certainly, this is the most expansive system to be produced from a phenomenological thinker. Husserl did not bring a system to fruition; Heidegger abandoned his project for the hermeneutic ontology of Dasein; Scheler never gathered together his large scope of ideas; and Merleau-Ponty’s ontology is unfinished and sketchy. Broadly characterized, Tymieniecka’s logos of life is a nonsubstantive, process philosophy of the reason of reason, or the sense of sense, which is a refashioning of her phenomenology of life and the human condition—the culminating synthesis of approximately forty years of research.
