    Exercises in Religious Understanding. [REVIEW]M. J. F. - 1976 - Review of Metaphysics 30 (2):339-340.
    In this book of essays, Burrell selects five religious thinkers principally to provide an example of doing hermeneutics. His chapters on Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Kierkegaard, and Jung, therefore, not only tell us what they thought about certain religious topics, but propose their procedures as distinct models for religious understanding. To bring out their distinctive contributions to the hermeneutical problem, he has carefully chosen the titles for each essay. Augustine shows us an example of religious understanding as a personal quest while (...)

  2. A Comparative Study of Four Change Detection Methods for Aerial Photography Applications.Gil Abramovich, Glen Brooksby, Stephen Bush, Manickam F., Ozcanli Swaminathan, Garrett Ozge & D. Benjamin - 2010 - Spie.
    We present four new change detection methods that create an automated change map from a probability map. In this case, the probability map was derived from a 3D model. The primary application of interest is aerial photographic applications, where the appearance, disappearance or change in position of small objects of a selectable class (e.g., cars) must be detected at a high success rate in spite of variations in magnification, lighting and background across the image. The methods rely on an earlier (...)

  3. A Quantitative Approach to Measuring Assurance with Uncertainty in Data Provenance.Stephen Bush, Moitra F., Crapo Abha, Barnett Andrew, Dill Bruce & J. Stephen - manuscript
    A data provenance framework is subject to security threats and risks, which increase the uncertainty, or lack of trust, in provenance information. Information assurance is challenged by incomplete information; one cannot exhaustively characterize all threats or all vulnerabilities. One technique that specifically incorporates a probabilistic notion of uncertainty is subjective logic. Subjective logic allows belief and uncertainty, due to incomplete information, to be specified and operated upon in a coherent manner. A mapping from the standard definition of information assurance to (...)

    Tillich’s System. [REVIEW]M. J. F. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 29 (2):346-347.
    The author states his thesis in outline form thus: "Tillich’s system, I hold, is composed of three basic elements which, for practical purposes, can be extended to four. These are: the philosophical ontology, the theological phenomenology, the ‘theme’ of union-separation-reunion, and the ‘dialectic’ of the potential-actual-fulfilled. The dialectic is the theme at work. The theme is the dialectic in structural form. Only by radically distinguishing the philosophical ontology from the theological phenomenology, and each from the theme, can a clear view (...)

    Heidegger. [REVIEW]M. S. F. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (4):691-692.
    This study centers on Sein und Zeit, Kant und das Problem der Metaphysik, and Einführung in die Metaphysik, and emphasizes the shift from the earlier to the later Heidegger. It should be useful to beginning students: consisting largely of translation and paraphrase, it does not distort Heidegger. It contains some good insights, but it is much too short to do justice to the subject--F. M. S.

    Perversity and Error: Studies on the "Averroist" John of Jandun.M. F. - 1956 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (2):364-365.
    John of Jandun, the early 14th-century master of arts, is selected as a representative of Latin Averroism in an attempt to show that conventional classifications of mediaeval thought break down, and to indicate how the term "Averroist" ought to be qualified and elaborated. Advocacy of the existence of a sensus agens to explain the actualization of immaterial sensible forms residing potentially in material objects, and of the existence of a single soul which is not the form of the body but (...)

    Seven scholarly studies developing the thesis that no significant history has been or will be written apart from the historian's having a philosophical and political conception of history." Recognizing the dangers inherent in this recommended interpenetration of history with philosophy and politics, the author discusses its philosophical distortion in dialectical idealism and materialism and its political distortion in the subordination of history to political ideology in Nazi and Soviet totalitarianism. The book is representative of the non-speculative "philosophy of history" being (...)

    Laws and Explanation in History. [REVIEW]M. S. F. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (4):690-690.
    This book effectively challenges the dogma that all explanation can be reduced to the "general law" type. The author maintains that this theory accounts for most historical explanation only by making qualifications and exceptions which vitiate whatever force the theory might have and by excluding the most important considerations from the theory itself by calling them "psychological," "heuristic," etc. This leads Dray to argue that the "general law" theory is being assumed true a priori and then forced to fit a (...)

The author describes Kant's method of defending "scientific insight" in the first Critique and attempts to apply this method to the other areas of experience more consistently and successfully than Kant did.--F.

    Between Past and Present. [REVIEW]M. S. F. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 12 (1):149-149.
    Rotenstreich sees history as a domain defined by the distinctive relation between the historical subject and the historical process, which are ontologically identical but epistemologically separate. The dialectic between subject and object sets the framework for discussions of objectivity, historical time, the relation of history to the social sciences, and the role of causality and laws in history. The book should prove rewarding to any one who will take the trouble to wade through a style which is difficult and often (...)

    Order and History. [REVIEW]M. S. F. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (4):697-697.
    Volumes two and three of this six-volume work together deal with Greek culture from its pre-hellenic origins to the period of the Skeptics. It is philosophy of history in the grand style. Though the language is diffuse and metaphorical, the work is learned and has a certain precision. Voegelin's thesis is that the creation of order is a constant of human nature. A concrete society, besides being an organization for pragmatic survival, is also an attunement with the order of being (...)

    The Free Church. [REVIEW]M. S. F. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (3):515-515.
    A sympathetic study of the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition which attempts to clarify the nature of the Free Church heritage and show its contributions to religious and political freedom. Though well-documented and competent, it is episodic and somewhat disorganized; it dwells less on history than on the relevance of Free Church ideas to contemporary problems of religion and society.--F.

    Soren Kierkegaard's Geschichtsphilosophie. [REVIEW]M. S. F. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (2):347-347.
    A competent and philosophically subtle study of S. K.'s notion of the relation of Christianity and history. The relation of time and eternity, of "sacred history" and ordinary history and the problem of contemporaneity in the Fragments, the Postscript and Training in Christianity are brought into focus through S. K.'s doctrine of the incarnation. This Holm interprets as "fictionalist"; "it is valid to believe that this man is God... as if it were so, although his empirical appearance can never reveal (...)

    The final volume in the fine translation of Cassirer's central work deals with the problem of knowledge, "the structure and articulation of a theoretical world view." The analysis proceeds from perception and representation, through the function of signification and the idea of concept, to mathematics and the highest forms of natural science. Cassirer's introduction offers a concise discussion in historical context of the idea of symbolic form itself.--F. M. S.
