    L’Existence de Dieu. Cahiers de L’Actualité Religieuse, No 16. [REVIEW]J. D. Bastable - 1964 - Philosophical Studies 13:301-304.
    The philosophical problem of the existence of God has acquired a pressing importance from the force of contemporary atheism. Some twenty expert thinkers express their personal reflections in the papers presented in April 1960 to the seventh Rencontres doctrinales at the Dominican college of theology at La Sartre in Huy, Belgium. A ten-page annex of critical discussion on the relation between belief and proof, between metaphysical experience and its dialectic towards the explicit affirmation of God reveals a candid appreciation that (...)

    A Companion to Wittgenstein’s Tractatus. [REVIEW]J. D. Bastable - 1968 - Philosophical Studies 17:390-393.
    Fifty years ago, after two years of research under Russell and four years’ war service which sharpened their differences, Wittgenstein completed the manuscript of his Tractatus Logco-Philosophicus A German edition appeared in 1921 and the first London edition with a facing English translation was published in 1922. A tightly compressed set of aphoristic statements, numbered decimally in some eighty octavo pages, whose laconic precision captured the post-war mood of scientific positivism, it was welcomed in an Introduction by Russell’s cautious accolade: (...)

    Thomas and the Physics of 1958: A Confrontation. [REVIEW]J. D. Bastable - 1958 - Philosophical Studies 8:248-249.
    From his authority as the co-author of established text-books, notably The Foundations of Physics, Dr. Margenau compares current scientific methodology with some relevant principles of St. Thomas’s epistemology, particularly in the perennial problem of the valid functions of reason and of sense in scientific experience. Since Quantum Theory has removed the possibility of absolute prediction and verification, reason can no longer be considered to offer a mere image of the sense world. Hence “the sensory domain is forever richer than theory (...)

    The Mentor Philosophers: The Age of Reason. [REVIEW]J. D. Bastable - 1964 - Philosophical Studies 13:335-335.
    These are two agreeable volumes of a paperback series of six which offer a convenient introduction at a modest price to the history of Western philosophy. Selecting basic texts from the main philosophers with a succinct scholarly commentary, they present the beginner with the mainly epistemological problems of the 17th and 18th centuries. The seventeenth century Age of Reason saw the publication of secular philosophy in the vernacular and with dependence upon the new physical sciences rather than theology. Its dominant (...)

    A Commentary on Kant’s Critique of Practical Reason. [REVIEW]J. D. Bastable - 1964 - Philosophical Studies 13:333-333.
    This speedy and elegant paperback edition of a monograph, first published in 1960, will be welcomed by Kantian student and scholar alike. Kant’s moral philosophy is usually expounded from his shorter and pedagogically independent Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals. The second Critique has been commented on rarely, although it both develops morality from the immediate principles of the Critique of Pure Reason and in the context of the eighteenth century theories which Kant evaluated, and completes his negative metaphysic with (...)

    Dieu Et L’Obligation Morale. L’Argument Déontologique Dans la Scolastique Récente. Studia No 14. [REVIEW]J. D. Bastable - 1964 - Philosophical Studies 13:307-311.
    This pioneering monograph, published by the Jesuit Faculties of Philosophy and Theology at Montréal, disclaims being ‘un essai original de philosophie spéculative’. Nevertheless Père Desjardins’ critico-historical study of the metaphysical grounding in some Absolute Reality of the absolute character experienced in moral obligation leads him beyond criticism of the notable diversity of its evaluation by neo-Scholastics to a deeper exploration of moral obligation in human action and its dialectic of physical liberty and moral necessity. The deontological argument to God was (...)

    The latest publication of the series, Sovietica of the Institute of East-European Studies, University of Fribourg is a synopsis by the indefatigable Father Bocheński of the official text-book, Osnovy Marksistsjoj Filosofi which was published in 1958 by the Institute of Philosophy of the Academy of Sciences of the Soviet Union.

    Approche Contemporaine D’Une Affirmation de Dieu. [REVIEW]J. D. Bastable - 1964 - Philosophical Studies 13:304-307.
    In an appreciative preface to the fiftieth volume of the philosophical publications of the Museum Lessianum Pére Dubarle notes the unmistakable fact that since Kant’s critique of speculative theism ‘on sait aussi combien les formes classiques de l’argumentation cherchant à fournir cette preuve sont devenues aujourd ‘hui intellectuellement inopérantes’. In courageous remedy Père Robert aims at developing an argument by rigorous reflection upon the metaphysical implications of the act of scientific knowledge - a contemporary reappraisal of St Augustine’s argument to (...)

    Dr Day offers a readable introduction to Chinese thinking from its 10th century B C Taoist and Confucian roots through its assimilation of Buddhism to its present development under the Western influences of Marxism, neo-realism and pragmatism. Classical thinking is presented in typical English translations, with free use of the translators’ comments within a general historical context for the tyro. Contemporary Chinese thought speaks for itself and evaluates the past as this extract from Fung Yu-Lan’s comprehensive History of Chinese Philosophy (...)

    While a new critical edition of Hegel’s works is in progress, the only complete English version of his capital lectures upon the philosophy of history is the century-old translation by Sibree, made from the 1840 revised German edition of Hegel’s son, Charles. Hegelianism has since dramatically flourished, waned and has been distorted in a new materialist interpretation of history and political science. There is a large demand to-day for publishing the pure source of his doctrine on history. Dover Publications render (...)

    There is an evident gulf between the modern sciences of nature and the classic Aristotelian science of the physical universe, which was in fact both a broad philosophy in its principles and a narrow, positive science in its concrete detail. Père Gardeil believes that it is possible to reconcile these differing versions of the same world of nature by accepting a distinction between the respective objects and limitations of a philosophy and of a science of nature: “Specifically, the Aristotelian philosophy (...)
