    Return to Reason. [REVIEW]Christopher A. Decaen - 2002 - Review of Metaphysics 56 (1):206-206.
    Lacking a subtitle as it does, the name of this work might lead one unfamiliar with Stephen Toulmin’s previous writings to expect an extended criticism and condemnation of postmodern thought and its skeptical excesses; although postmodernity also is implicitly caught in the dragnet of the argument, the book’s target is in fact modernity. Expanding upon a theme introduced in his previous books The Uses of Argument and Cosmopolis, in Return to Reason Toulmin reflects on the origin and spread of the (...)

    Spectacles of Truth in Classical Greek Philosophy: Theoria in Its Cultural Context.Christopher A. Decaen - 2006 - Review of Metaphysics 59 (3):668-670.
    In spite of the subject matter, however, Nightingale takes pains to explain that she does not intend to be doing philosophy per se.

  7. Politics, Order and History: Essays on the Work of Eric Voegelin. [REVIEW]Christopher A. Decaen - 2002 - Review of Metaphysics 56 (2):425-426.
