    A sympathetic but critical examination of some of the presuppositions of Husserl's phenomenological program, leading to an exposition of their contradictory nature. In the light of (...)this critique, Eley examines Husserl's view of the crisis of our age as rooted in the antithesis of life-world and technology. The book concludes with a demand for a reconstruction of the phenomenological program and a more searching examination of the crisis of our age. Exceptionally clear, the book prepares the ground for a more intelligent assessment of Husserl's phenomenology and for a better understanding of Heidegger's departure from the phenomenological program.--K.

    Nicolai Hartmann Und Das Ende der Ontologie[REVIEW]H. K. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 16 (4):802-803.
    By means of an analysis of Nicolai Hartmann's thought, the author attempts to show that his and, indeed, all ontological projects are unable to develop criteria (...)showing why a certain ontology should be preferred over another. The reason for this is sought in the "gnoseo-ontological circle"--the fact that all attempts to state such criteria already imply a commitment to a certain ontology. It is impossible to appeal beyond this circle. Consequently, the only remaining choice is between skepticism and the path which Heidegger has pointed out, a path which leads beyond all ontology. Bold though it is, the argument is developed with great clarity.--K. H. (shrink)

    Contemporary Philosophy (La Philosophie Contemporaine). Volume II, Philosophy of Science.R. H. K. - 1970 - Review of Metaphysics 23 (3):571-572.
    This second volume in the series designed to review the work done in various areas of philosophy during the period 1956-1966 is concerned with the philosophy (...)of science. There are forty essays on a variety of topics in the philosophy of science describing the work done in that area in the past decade and a bibliography covering the same period. Most are in English, some in French or German. Some representative topics and their authors are: Laws, Models, Causality, Induction and Probability, Scientific Methodology, Time, Space, Cosmology, Philosophy and Physics, Quantum Theory, Biology and Philosophy. In addition there are several general essays on the influence of various philosophers and scientists on current developments in the philosophy of science, on the ethical and philosophical implications of science, on Cybernetics, Information Theory, Game theory and a number of essays on the development of philosophy of science in different countries of Western and Eastern Europe and Japan. Like the first volume of this series, this book is an indispensable guide to anyone interested in the field, and a place should be made for it on every library shelf---where there is an interest in philosophy of science.--R.

    Atomic Order: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Microphysics.R. H. K. - 1970 - Review of Metaphysics 23 (4):739-739.
    The first part of this long two-part work is a history of the development of the modern theory of the atom from Dalton to the present. (...)The second part offers philosophical reflections on this history beginning with a discussion of epistemological implications and following that with an account of ontological implications. The author deals with familiar questions about the reality of micro-particles, complementarity, indeterminism, the role of the observer and other topics. But he also discusses topics like holism, atomic order, the intelligibility of matter and others which are less commonly discussed by philosophers in connection with modern physical theories. The author, who is trained in physics as well as philosophy, has a flair for metaphysical speculation as well as wide knowledge of contemporary physical theory. He stresses the novelties of the quantum conception of matter, argues against its critics like Bohm, and sees it as presenting a radically new conception of atomic order despite its commitment to indeterminism. The views of Werner Heisenberg, who encouraged the author to write the book and who read it in manuscript, have clearly influenced the author, although they do not dominate his thinking.--R. H. K.
