    Probability, Confirmation, and Simplicity: Readings in the Philosophy of Inductive Logic.P. J. M. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (2):385-386.
    As inductive logic and the philosophy of probability theory have become of wider interest, it has become clear that a book of readings in these and related topics would be useful for courses since most of the important articles are scattered and inaccessible. The editors have fashioned an extensive collection of papers in four main areas: the meaning of probability, confirmation theory, simplicity of theories and structures, the justification of induction. Each chapter is preceded by an introduction which sets out (...)

    Justice, Human Nature, and Political Obligation. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1977 - Review of Metaphysics 31 (1):118-119.
    In offering his analysis of the concepts of the good and the just, the author combines certain techniques of social science with a philosophical reflection upon certain fundamental issues. It is the objective of this book to establish a balanced approach differing from relativism and historicism on the one hand, and normative absolutism on the other. The task is not an easy one; many may view the attempt here to be less than conclusive, though it is certainly challenging. Essentially the (...)

    A Study of Frege.P. J. M. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):819-819.
    Although Frege is now one of the most important figures in analytical philosophy, there are virtually no full-length studies available. Walker does not try to present all of Frege—that would be a monumental undertaking—but only to consider the philosophical aspects of his thought. Frege's theory of functions, concepts, and objects is first studied; then naming and describing are related to predication and thence to concepts; the notion of the sense of words and expressions, and then the notion of truth, especially (...)

    Positivism and Sociology. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 29 (2):341-342.
    A collection of essays, six of which appear in English for the first time, focusing on various problems of positivistic philosophy, this book treats such issues as the adaption of natural science methodology to sociology, the problem of generalization in the social sciences, and the implications of science for social values. These essays are argumentative in tone, and often interrelated; the editor has provided a well balanced selection of spokesmen for the diverse points of view represented. Professor Giddens’ introduction is (...)

    The Logic of Society. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 29 (2):334-335.
    This work is a defense of positivism in social theory: Addis is committed to the view that the substantive concerns of physical and social science are essentially the same. Indeed, he states that an adequate philosophy of society presupposes an adequate philosophy of science. He therefore begins with an analysis of various themes from the latter: causation, the notions of process and closed systems, and determinism. It is in fact a basic presumption of the book that some refined theory of (...)

    Introduction to the Theory of Finite Automata.P. J. M. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):814-814.
    The first of the authors is an engineer, the second a logician, and they have collaborated to produce a systematic and comprehensive treatise and textbook on the theory of automata—computing machines viewed abstractly—which presupposes only a slight familiarity with logic; there is a long first chapter which develops propositional and predicate logic; the stipulation of logical operators, the "nets" constructed therefrom, and their physical realization comprise the next two chapters. The representation of automata in input-output tables and flow diagrams, and (...)

    The New American Ideology. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1977 - Review of Metaphysics 30 (3):531-532.
    Lodge’s thoughtful study is a mixture of political science, history, and economics drawn together by a central philosophical theme. The author seeks to explore the issue of the legitimacy of social institutions, and he raises certain questions concerning the nature of man in society as well as the relationship between ideology and social values. In his view, the dominant social institutions that grew with the United States were founded upon a "Lockean" ideology. At the core of this ideology was the (...)

    Elements of Mathematical Logic.P. J. M. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):816-816.
    Novikov is one of Russia's leading logicians and the appearance of this fine textbook is a good indicator of increasing American interest in Soviet logic. The book contains some new material, including a new independence proof of the rule of complete induction from the remaining axioms of first-order arithmetic. The first third of this work consists in chapters on propositional algebra and the propositional calculus. The first-order predicate calculus comes next under discussion: here a number of important classical results—Gödel's incompleteness (...)

    Hypothetical Reasoning.P. J. M. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (3):597-598.
    This is the first book-length study published of the structure of reasoning and argument dependent on hypotheses. It encompasses far more than the, by now, familiar discussion of contrafactual conditional—this is but one chapter—since it ranges over such topics as the nature of hypothetical inference, belief-contravening hypotheses, contrafactual conditionals and modality, and entailment of conclusion from premisses under restriction. There are three appendices which concern, respectively, the historical roots of hypothetical reasoning and its attendant perplexities, the difficulty concerned in the (...)

    Knowledge and Politics. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1977 - Review of Metaphysics 30 (3):537-538.
    Unger has written a thoughtful but problematic study of the shortcomings of liberal political theory. The specific method of the critique is his own, but it is well-structured and readable. The problem is that the precise nature of the "liberal psychology" and "liberal political theory" under attack is never very clear. This lack of clarity stands in marked contrast to the general tone of the work. One can assume with some justification that the author sees the classic core of the (...)

    Science and Values. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1975 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (3):553-554.
    Professor Grünfeld’s book puts forward the thesis that the hard and fast lines that have been drawn between philosophy and science, as well as between the hard and soft sciences, are inaccurate and possibly illusory. He contends that values, as a function of philosophy, are related to science in various complex ways. In a sense, his approach involves a collapsing of metascientific and scientific disciplines into one another. This thesis is applied to the analysis of historical method, language, and philosophy (...)

    Phenomenology, Role, and Reason. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1974 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (1):130-131.
    The author here presents a series of significant, thoughtful, and well-written essays which are united by their common concern with man and his social world. The book is subtitled "Essays on the Coherence and Deformation of Social Reality." The essays, particularly in Part One, offer an introduction to and a defense of the phenomenological approach to philosophy, though Natanson does tend to slant his reading in an existentialist direction. He strongly objects to recent attempts to bridge the gap between the (...)

    Revolution, Reform and Social Justice. [REVIEW]P. M. M. - 1976 - Review of Metaphysics 29 (4):737-738.
    This is a timely critique of contemporary Marxist theory, its implications for social structure, and its practical dilemmas. Three themes appear throughout: the mythologizing of Marx, the rationale of Revolution, and the significance of history for social philosophy. Contrary to the approach of many commentators, Hook emphasizes the tremendous differences between the "early" and "late" Marx. He insists that "to judge Marx’s meaning by his own intent, we must go to the published works for which Marx took public responsibility." In (...)

    Chomsky is widely mentioned in those philosophical circles whose interest centers on the analysis of language, but until now he has really been little read; this new work will remedy that situation. Here Chomsky, building on a presupposed acquaintance with linguistics, provides a stimulating examination of four major areas of linguistic theory: first, generative grammars are studied in their relation to language learning and understanding, then they are further considered as theories of linguistic use and competence; Chomsky here sets out (...)

    Die Antinomien der Logik: Semantische Untersuchungen.P. J. M. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):819-819.
    This concise work is a study of the semantical aspects of various paradoxes arising in formal logic. The author constructs a second-order system T with an interpretation in order to provide apparatus for stating and dodging the antinomies. After presenting a number of paradoxes, the author discusses a semantic vicious-circle principle, and provides a clarification of the problems by its application. He then discusses semantic aspects of some classical meta-mathematical results of Gödel, Tarski, Kleene, and Turing on unsolvable problems. Also (...)

    Zoologist A. J. Cain began historical research on Linnaeus in 1956 in connection with his dissatisfaction over the standard taxonomic hierarchy and the rules of binomial nomenclature. His famous 1958 paper 'Logic and Memory in Linnaeus's System of Taxonomy' argues that Linnaeus was following Aristotle's method of logical division without appreciating that it properly applies only to 'analysed entities' such as geometric figures whose essential nature is already fully known. The essence of living things being unanalysed, there is no basis (...)

    The strength of this book is not a novelty of analysis, but rather its clarity and readability. The author intends it to be a useful teaching tool, "a genuine introduction, presupposing neither background in philosophy nor familiarity with the issues...." It is well arranged and quite successful as an introductory commentary. The book would appear to work best as a secondary source, supplementing more extensive philosophical texts. It need not be limited to courses specifically dealing with social and political philosophy. (...)

    To those who are not specially interested in his thought, Nietzsche's life is fascinating: professor at twenty-four, retired at thirty-four, disappointed in love, wandering, deep in solitude and illumined by revelation. That his life ended in madness also pleases; the indignant find it a punishment, lovers of madness find it a proof, and novelists find it ready material.
