    Personal Existence After Death: Reductionist Circularities and the Evidence. [REVIEW]Curtis L. Hancock - 1996 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (1):154-155.
    Appeal to faith is not uncommon in disputes about the mind-body problem. It is tempting to assume that dualists are more likely than physicalists to presuppose faith in supporting their conclusions, but in recent years physicalists have made claims of faith a standard practice. Of course, their version of faith is peculiar, a faith commitment that my colleague, Brendan Sweetman, has called "the scientific faith argument." This type of reasoning is typified by the remarks of J. J. C. Smart: "...the (...)

    Origin of the Human Species. [REVIEW]Curtis L. Hancock - 2003 - Review of Metaphysics 56 (4):864-865.
    That Darwinism has been immune generally from philosophical and scientific criticism says something about its iconic status as a paradigm. As Alvin Plantinga has said, “Darwinian evolution has become an idol of the contemporary tribe... part of the intellectual orthodoxy of our day.” After many decades of presumptive authority as a paradigm, some philosophers and scientists are at last examining whether Darwinian theory ought to be persuasive. Dennis Bonnette’s book is an outstanding addition to this important new examination. In fourteen (...)

    New Approaches to God: Based on Proofs By Anselm, Aquinas, and Kant.Curtis L. Hancock - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (3):662-663.
    Jules Brady has written a volume that demonstrates a keen understanding of the history of natural theology and an ability to develop original interpretations. After an Introduction, there appear a Preface and a Prologue. Herein Brady outlines the book and introduces some philosophical terms and distinctions that illumine principles basic to Aquinas’s theistic arguments. He also adumbrates in the Prologue his evaluation of Anselm’s argument. The next three chapters contain excerpts from Anselm, Aquinas, and Kant. These texts anchor his subsequent (...)

    Iris Exiled: A Synoptic History of Wonder.Curtis Hancock - 2003 - Review of Metaphysics 57 (2):435-437.
    Dennis Quinn resides in the Department of English at Kansas University, where innumerable alumni will attest that he is a master teacher. In this excellent book he also trades in the discipline of philosophy, which is fitting given that philosophy begins in wonder and Quinn’s book so acutely wonders at wonder. The book divides into four parts in which the author unfolds Western attitudes about wonder and evaluates them in ten chapters. The fourth part is something of an epilogue, so (...)

    The One and the Many.Curtis L. Hancock - 2015 - Review of Metaphysics 69 (2):233-259.
    If contemporary philosophers of science could transcend the skepticism that seems to have become obligatory in modern epistemologies, they could restore a comprehensive vision of science that would be a boon to science and scientific education. Science is not mere knowledge. Science is knowledge of something that is necessary and universal because its causes are understood. This was Aristotle’s conception of science, a conception which includes knowledge of substances and the first ontological principles of things. St. Thomas Aquinas refined this (...)

    Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism From Rousseau to Foucault.Curtis L. Hancock - 2005 - Review of Metaphysics 59 (2):427-428.
    Hicks’s impressive grasp of the history of philosophy over the past few centuries enables him to explain postmodernism by identifying its signposts. He lets sensitive analysis of the memorable episodes of post-modernism speak to the essential issues that drive it. His treatment of the importance of Kant’s skepticism in getting the postmodernist engine going down the track is especially instructive. However, Hicks understates, or perhaps does not see, that the origins of postmodernist skepticism are already in what he calls “modernism.” (...)

    Dlaczego Gilson? Dlaczego Teraz? / Why Gilson? Why Now?Curtis L. Hancock - 2013 - Studia Gilsoniana 2:7-20.
    The author identifies and discusses the most important elements of Étienne Gilson’s thought which emanate out of his articulation and defense of the Western Creed. To the question: why Gilson, why now?, the author offers a following answer: because we need to champion the Western Creed, defend philosophical realism, rightly interpret the history of philosophy, correctly comprehend Christian philosophy, and show that modernist and postmodernist systems are arbitrary. The author maintains that Gilson delivers us with the realist philosophy of the (...)

    Gilson o Racjonalności Wiary Chrześcijańskiej / Gilson on the Rationality of Christian Belief.Curtis L. Hancock - 2013 - Studia Gilsoniana 2:131-143.
    The underlying skepticism of ancient Greek culture made it unreceptive of philosophy. It was the Catholic Church that embraced philosophy. Still, Étienne Gilson reminds us in Reason and Revelation in the Middle Ages that some early Christians rejected philosophy. Their rejection was based on fideism: the view that faith alone provides knowledge. Philosophy is unnecessary and dangerous, fideists argue, because anything known by reason can be better known by faith, and reason, on account of the sin of pride, seeks to (...)

    Transcendental Sophistry.Curtis L. Hancock - 1999 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1999 (115):190-192.
    Something has gone seriously wrong with contemporary philosophy. Philosophy today has become a catalogue of competing alternative theories, each striving for internal consistency, but unable to accomplish anything more. Somehow, however, philosophy matters. When philosophy ails, so do all the other disciplines. They all depend on philosophy to demarcate and justify the various orders of knowledge. If philosophy can offer no justification for truth claims, there are only the words of those who enjoy status, credentials and power. In Cartesian Nightmare, (...)

    The Concept of Moral Obligation.Curtis L. Hancock - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (4):989-991.
    This book professes to be “an unabashed exercise in metaethics”. The first few pages explain that the author does not attempt to answer normative questions, such as “what it is that makes right acts right, what the various virtues and their interrelations are, what constitutes a proper excuse for vile behavior, and so on”. Instead he answers questions of supposedly another ilk: “What is the relation between ‘ought’ and ‘good’?... What are imperfect duties? Does ‘ought’ apply only to actions, or (...)

    Peter Redpath’s Philosophy of History.Curtis L. Hancock - 2016 - Studia Gilsoniana 5 (1):55-93.
    Peter Redpath is a distinguished historian of philosophy. He believes that the best way to acquire a philosophical education is through the study of philosophy’s history. Because he is convinced that ideas have consequences, he holds that the history of philosophy illuminates important events in history. Philosophy is a necessary condition for sound education, which, in turn, is a necessary condition for cultural and political leadership. Hence, the way educators and leaders shape culture reflects the effects of philosophy on culture. (...)
