    E-Book EnthusiasmHow the Martians Discovered Algebra: Explorations in Induction and the Philosophy of Mathematicsby Roger E. Bissell E-Book, No Bibliography or indexWho Says That's Art? A Commonsense View of the Visual Artsby Michelle Marder Kamhi Pro Arte Books : E-Book and Paperback.Fred Seddon - 2014 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 14 (2):275-281.
    In this review, two significant works published in e-book format demand the attention of Rand scholars: Roger E. Bissell's book How the Martians Discovered Algebra: Explorations in Induction and the Philosophy of Mathematics and Michelle Marder Kamhi's Who Says That's Art? A Commonsense View of the Visual Arts. Covering wildly different territory, the two works make an important contribution to the literature.

    The Principle of Contradiction in Metaphysics, Gamma.Frederick A. Seddon Jr - 1981 - New Scholasticism 55 (2):191-207.
    The purpose of this dissertation is to provide a defence of Aristotle's principle of contradiction against the critique made on it by Jan Lukasiewicz in an article he wrote in 1910 which was translated and published in the March 1971 number of The Review of Metaphysics. Lukasiewicz maintains in general that the law of contradiction has no logical worth. Specifically, he charges Aristotle with having several laws of contradiction instead of one as Aristotle claims; with attempting to prove the law (...)

    Ayn Rand Society Philosophical Studies. [REVIEW]Fred Seddon - 2014 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 14 (1):75-79.
    This article reviews the first two works featuring essays derived from talks given before the Ayn Rand Society, an affiliated group of the American Philosophical Association, Eastern Division. The books are both edited by the late Allan Gotthelf and James G. Lennox, each dealing with a different aspect of Ayn Rand's philosophy. The first is a study in Ayn Rand's normative theory and the second offers reflections on Rand's theory of knowledge.

    Northrop on Russian Communism.Fred A. Seddon - 1986 - Studies in Soviet Thought 32 (2):133-154.
    The purpose of this study is to examine F. S. C. Northrop's approach to Russian Communism via his analysis of the fundamental types of all possible concepts and how an exposition of the basic concepts of Russian Communism enable us to understand not only the past performances of the Soviet Union but also to predict what they are likely to do in the future. This goal is accomplished by an examination of three essays that Northrop penned over a period of (...)

    McAllister on Northrop.Fred Seddon - 1993 - Journal of Philosophical Research 18:261-269.
    This paper attempts to answer Joseph B. McAllister’s critique o f the epistemology of F. S. C. Northrop. Toward this end an exposition of the essence of Northrop’s theory of knowledge is presented and a simple comparison with McAllister’s similar effort reveals the latter’s deficiencies. I also reveal how McAllister’s criticism of Northrop’s “supposed” realism depends on equating realism in general with one kind, direct realism. If this is so, then Northrop is neither a skeptic nor a moral or legal (...)

    Examining The Fountainhead.Fred Seddon - 2013 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 13 (2):205-209.
    Robert Mayhew has edited a series of books featuring essays examining the novels of Ayn Rand. This book is the third in the series, and it is a highly recommended collection. Among the best essays are those written by Shoshana Milgram, Jeff Britting, Tore Boeckmann, and Mayhew. The book does, however, suffer from a few scholarly lapses.

    The author responds to Michelle Marder Kamhi’s reply to his review of her book, Who Says That’s Art? He takes her to task on a few issues, but largely sees this as a mere skirmish between two colleagues who agree on many fundamentals.
