Philosophical Interrogations [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):163-164 (1965)

Growing out of a suggestion of Paul Weiss when he served as editor of the Review of Metaphysics, a series of interrogations have been conducted with seven prominent philosophers including Buber, Wild, Wahl, Blanshard, Weiss, Hartshorne and Tillich. Each interrogation has been supervised by a philosopher familiar with the work of the interrogated philosopher and queries submitted by a wide variety of philosophers are carefully organized. Because the questions are frequently pointed and well-formed, the result is lively and informative. Some of the philosophers interrogated are especially adept at facing up to the queries while others seem content to reiterate original formulations of their positions. One feels that he is listening in on genuine philosophic conversations which should prove helpful for anyone who wants to understand and assess the philosophic contribution of the philosophers who are here so incisively questioned.—R. J. B.
