    The Moral Point of View: A Rational Basis of Ethics. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 12 (1):142-142.
    Attempting to elucidate the logical features of ethical language, Baier holds that moral judgments express somewhat complicated facts which, for anyone who has adopted the "moral point of view," serve as reasons for action. Clearly written and subtly argued, this book may well come to occupy an important place in the literature of contemporary analytic ethics.--A. C. P.

    Modern Science and Human Values: A Study in the History of Ideas. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):719-719.
    The author holds that the enduring achievement of the modern mind is the recognition of a sharp distinction between fact and value; this work is a history of that distinction. In separate sections devoted to the history of scientific method and the history of value theory, Hall covers the ground from the medieval period to the present. His conclusion strikes a pessimistic note; modernity, after distinguishing fact and value, has had marvelous success with the former but is in danger of (...)

    Perceiving: A Philosophical Study. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (3):512-513.
    A sober and careful formulation of a realistic--as opposed to a phenomenalistic--theory of knowledge. Chisholm's discussion of the "sense-datum fallacy" and of "empiricism" are especially enlightening, as is the way in which he calls attention to revealing analogies between problems in moral theory and problems in epistemology.--A.

    The Philosophy of Education. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (2):351-351.
    An interesting and well-written attempt to direct the light of contemporary British linguistic analysis into the recesses of educational theory. Though such illumination may be needed there, the book will be of more interest to philosophers than to educators; O'Conner limits himself to an elementary account of recent philosophical developments in areas broadly relevant to educational theory such as the nature of moral discourse and the nature of explanations and hypotheses.--A.

    Ethical Value. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (3):539-540.
    The thesis of this essay in philosophical analysis is that ethical words are used referentially, that for the most part they have a single unitary sense, and that they refer to whatever is "happy-making" or satisfying. The author supports this conclusion by means of detailed refutations of some of the criticisms brought against naturalism, paying special attention to the "naturalistic fallacy" argument as developed by Moore, Ewing and the contemporary non-cognitivists. He concludes that philosophical analysis ought to reject the "method (...)

    Life and Mind. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):725-725.
    A lecture by an eminent biologist in which the crucial problem of contemporary biology and psychology is identified as the problem of the nature of mind. Sinnott's suggestion--that the solution lies in "a fundamental identification of life and mind"--is interesting and provocative, but he attempts a bit too much for the space at his disposal.--A. C.

    Recognizing that contemporary attacks upon theology question the intelligibility rather than the truth of theological propositions, the author begins with comments upon the discussion between A. G. N. Flew, R. M. Hare, Basil Mitchell and others in New Essays in Philosophical Theology. After pointing out that contemporary objections to theological discourse are far from conclusive, he suggests that problems arising with respect to such discourse are to be resolved by a return to a theory of knowledge which holds that intellection (...)

    Modern Science and Christian Beliefs. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (1):168-168.
    A fairly popular examination of the modern "impasse" between religion and science. Smethurst holds that science and religion cannot ultimately conflict because modern science depends upon certain presuppositions which make sense only within a Christian Weltanschauung, and scientific knowledge, despite its indisputable power, is in an important sense, "abstract" and therefore limited. Though much of what the author has to say is stimulating, it is also oversimplified; the book attempts a great deal but is only partially successful.--A. C. P.

    An unpleasantly dogmatic presentation of contemporary Marxist philosophy. Though his explanation of Marxism may be competent, some of the author's interpretations of other philosophies are merely amusing: e.g., the reason positivists hold a non-necessitarian view of causation is that "...then clearly socialism is not inevitable... a boon for an imperialism plunging dizzily toward its destruction."--A.

    This book claims to be an attempt to present semantics to the general public. "Semantics," however, turns out to be a general rubric for some of the logical doctrines of recent ordinary language philosophy. Oversimplification leads Wilson to present as the discovery of modern "semantics" an extraordinarily naive linguistic subjectivism.--A. C. P.

    Bultmann's "demythologizing," according to Mr. Davis, consists in stripping away the non-historical elements of the Bible in order to lay bare the kernel of "existential meaning" embedded in the events about which the myths arose. Mr. Davis is lucid about what Bultmann does not believe; his account of the "existential meaning" which is to replace "discredited mythology" is both sketchy and puzzling.-- A. C. P.

    Society and Self in the Novel. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (3):547-547.
    Six beautifully written essays dealing with the relation of society to self in the novels of Cervantes, nineteenth-century English writers, Proust, Sinclair Lewis and Joyce. Though there is a great deal of individual variety, the authors see the structure of the novel in terms of a tension between private vision and an unsatisfying public truth; it is the task of the novelist both to portray and to resolve this tension.--A.

    A posthumous volume in which Parker offers a rich and variegated contribution to ethical theory. Parker identifies value with the assuagement of desire. And he resolutely acknowledges the implication of this definition: value judgments are "lyrical"-that is, expressive of the speaker's wishes, attitudes, etc. Although the book adds little to recent discussions of non-cognitivist ethics, Parker defends his position with a warmth and insight seldom found in more analytical treatments.--A.

    What's New in Religion? A Critical Study of New Theology, New Morality, and Secular Christianity. [REVIEW]P. S. C. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (2):376-377.
    This is a very readable theological attack on current religious journalism about "the death of God" and its moral consequences. Rightly chiding the "radical" theologians for their tendentious use of words like "new," Hamilton wrongly equates their talk of "the secular" with support of the profane and so sometimes misses the import of their groping for new ways of thinking and acting as Christians. Seen through his eyes, much of their thought is really nineteenth century liberal humanism repackaged for the (...)

    Thought and Truth. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (3):542-542.
    An extensive essay in philosophical anthropology. The author maintains that "...man is himself the absoluteness of being, and the entire world is his impression and his truth." He then tries to show that the history of philosophy and the history of religion confirm and illustrate this view. The historical and illustrative material predominates; as a result the author's central contentions receive less than adequate development and clarification.--A. C. P.

    The first volume of a projected three volume series, this book is at once a history of ancient philosophy and an attempt to explore and defend the thesis that "what is called Greek ontology was not only a strictly logical, but also a religious, concern." The following two volumes of the series will deal with medieval and modern philosophy from the perspective of the relation between speculation and revelation. Kroner argues that speculative philosophy and revealed religion, although exhibiting ineradicable differences (...)

    The Coming World Civilization. [REVIEW]C. P. A. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):719-720.
    An attempt to forecast the course of the "coming world civilization" with special attention to the place of religion. Hocking sees modernity as a victim of split-mentality; on the one hand, there has been, since Descartes, a progressive "advance into Subjectivity" with its attendant dangers of relativism and psychologism, while on the other, modern science represents "an advance into Objectivity" which has seemed to threaten men's most cherished values. This split will be overcome, he thinks, principally through a reconstituted religion--a (...)

    Christian Ethics: A Historical and Systematic Analysis of Its Dominant Idea. [REVIEW]P. S. C. - 1969 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (4):751-752.
    Faruqi's book is more about Christian dogmatics than about ethics. Its interest stems from the fact that the author is a Muslim who knows recent Protestant thought well and is not afraid to call Karl Barth a bigot. After an interesting but unrelated introduction on methodology in the history of religions, the author settles down to some pet Muslim peeves concerning the doctrines of original sin and the divinity of Christ. Instead of the Jesus of history he presents us with (...)
