    Facts and Values. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (2):379-380.
    Subtitled "Studies in Ethical Analysis," this collection of eleven essays, most of which have previously appeared in journals, deals with a number of problems central to modern ethical theory: the emotive interpretation of ethical language, persuasive definitions and their role in ethical reasoning, the cognitive versus emotive conceptions of ethics: many of these problems were first raised and examined by Stevenson in his earlier book Ethics and Language. Other essays are of a less retrospective nature: studies on Moore and Dewey, (...)

    The Ways of Paradox and Other Essays. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (1):158-159.
    This volume is published concurrently with the one reviewed below and together they unite a number of Quine's previously scattered papers into two compact volumes; this volume deals with his more philosophical work while the other is concerned with more purely technical logical studies. The twenty-one essays cover the period 1934-1964 and none have appeared between hard covers before. Several of the articles—"The ways of paradox," "Foundations of mathematics," "On the application of modern logic," and "Necessary truth"—are essentially popular expositions. (...)

    The Basic Laws of Arithmetic: Exposition of the System. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):810-810.
    This book is a translation of some of the more important parts of the Grundgesetze of Frege: the introduction, the first part of the first volume which gives an exposition of the construction, rules, axioms of Frege's formal system, and two appendices, one of which is from the second volume and gives Frege's analysis of the paradox found by Russell in his system. The editor has provided a long introduction "for those not familiar with Frege," although it will benefit those (...)

    Aspects of Scientific Explanation and Other Essays in the Philosophy of Science. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (3):587-588.
    This rather compendious volume contains twelve articles, eleven of which have been published in the last twenty years; the last, from which the book takes its title, appears in print for the first time. There are four chapters: "Confirmation, Induction, and Rational Belief" contains the paper "Inductive Inconsistencies" as well as "Studies in the Logic of Confirmation"; "Empiricist Criteria of Cognitive Significance" appears in the section "Conceptions of Cognitive Significance"; the very well-known "The Theoretician's Dilemma" appears in the third chapter—"Structure (...)

    Models and Analogies in Science. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (1):153-153.
    There is little doubt that in the actual practice of science, models, metaphors, analogies, reasoning by similar cases, and other "parallel" forms of argument are often essential for the discovery of new phenomena and their theoretical interpretation. The author has assembled in five essays, culled and developed from previous ones, her ideas on some basic questions concerning models and analogies. The first chapter considers in dialogue form the role of models in science; the next section is an exploration of the (...)

    Of the Standard of Taste and Other Essays. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):813-813.
    All the essays contained herein, with the exception of the last two—"On Suicide" and "On the Immortality of the Soul"—have appeared in the author's Essays, Moral, Political, and Literary ; the others were published posthumously. In this wide-ranging collection Hume addresses himself to aspects of aesthetics and literary criticism, the philosophy of history, philosophical "types", human nature and belief. The volume conveys a side of Hume too often forgotten in our present admiration of his foreshadowing of analytical philosophy: the man (...)

    Selected Logic Papers. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (1):159-159.
    This collection of twenty-three papers from the period 1934-1960 is concerned with formal number theory and syntax, axiomatic set theory, truth functions, and quantification theory. In the first group appear "Concatenation as a basis for arithmetic" and "Definition of substitution," among others; the second includes "Set-theoretic foundations for logic," "On ω-inconsistency," and "Element and number." Quine's important articles "Completeness of the propositional calculus" and "Cores and prime implicants of truth functions" are in the third section; the last one includes "A (...)

    The first edition of this now classical work appeared in 1953, the second heavily revised edition in 1961; this most recent edition is a revision in detail only of the previous one. The book is divided into three parts, the first two dealing with finite and infinite sets, infinite cardinals and their arithmetic, and related remarks on non-standard mathematics and the equivalence of various definitions of finitude. The third part considers ordered sets and isomorphism types, the special case of linearly (...)

    This volume is a collection of papers and selections of previously published books of Russell. The six divisions concern themselves with the distinction between formal and empirical sciences, the connexion of sense data with the structure of physical reality and with the philosophy of science, problems concerning mental phenomena, cause vs. inference, and finally, the relation of science to its cultural matrix.—P.

    Contributions to Logic and Methodology in Honor of J. M. Bochenski. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (3):607-607.
    This is the collection of essays presented to Bochenski on his 60th birthday, and it contains, as a mirror of Bochenski's own work, a broad spectrum of studies ranging from formal logic and history of logic, to the philosophy of logic and language, and to the methodology of explanation in Greek philosophy. Of the seventeen articles, these are some of the more important to the reviewer: "Betrachtungen zum Sequenzen Kalkül" by Paul Bernays, which is an extensive study of Gentzen-type formulations (...)

    Einführung in Die Grundbegriffe Und Probleme der Modernen Logik. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):812-813.
    In this compact volume the author gives a sprightly introduction to modern symbolic logic, at no time side-stepping philosophical problems concerning the nature of formal logic. The first chapter is a brief comparison of traditional syllogistic logic and modern "logistic"; the next three chapters deal with the nature of logic as illustrated through various elementary logical systems: logic as ontology, logic as theory of language, logic as methodology of deductive sciences. Hasenjaeger then examines richer systems—many-sorted, those with definite descriptors, etc.—and (...)

    Mathematics and Science: Last Essays. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (4):778-778.
    A translation of the 1913 volume Dernières Pensées, this collection of papers contains much material of interest to the logician and the philosopher of science. In "The Logic of Infinity" Poincaré clarifies the notion of "predicative set" and discusses Zermelo's and Russell's approaches to set theory. "The Evolution of Laws" attempts to formulate the question "do laws of nature evolve?" Two papers concern space and time, two others, the electrostatic and quantum theories of matter.

    The Elements of Formal Logic. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):813-813.
    This introductory logic text for philosophers stresses decision procedures for the propositional and predicate calculi. In the treatment of the former the authors first present the apparatus for constructing logical inferences and establishing their validity; they then reformulate the system in an axiomatic way and prove its consistency and completeness; they also discuss, for example, techniques for proving independence of axioms. The lower predicate calculus is then developed, first in a monadic form, then in an extended one for which decision (...)

    This rigorous treatment of elementary logic can best be characterized by noting that it relies heavily on semantical analyses of systems of logic running from the propositional calculus right through to a system of second-order arithmetic. The first chapter covers a multiplicity of topics: the concept of consequence, proofs and calculi, the symbolization of mathematical propositions. Hermes then painstakingly constructs quantification theory: first, the language itself, then its semantics; he then presents a completely set up predicate calculus, giving special attention (...)

    Although Machiavelli was never a military commander, he was throughout much of his life deeply concerned with the conduct of martial affairs; in short, a Renaissance Herman Kahn. This book is an essay on the technique of war: how on army is organized, who make the best soldiers, field manœuvers and battle formations, logistics, internal stability and control of military units, techniques of siege; these are considered both historically with reference to the ancients, as well as the present—the contemporary applications (...)

    The Buddhist Nirvana and Its Western Interpreters. [REVIEW]J. H. P. - 1969 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (4):769-769.
    This is a well-written analysis of the interpreters and interpretations of the Buddhist nirvana from the West. The first chapter treats the West's encounters with Buddhism before 1800, Marco Polo, etc. The remainder of the book deals with the interpretations of nirvana by Eugène Burnouf, Friedrich Max Müller, James D'Alwis, Robert Caesar Childres, Schopenhauer, Wagner, Nietzsche, Hermann Oldenberg, the Rhys Davidses, La Vallée Poussin, and Stcherbatsky.

    The Navya-Nyäya Doctrine of Negation. [REVIEW]J. H. P. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (1):149-149.
    This study, under the title of an explanation of the New Nyäya views on negation, deals with the Navya-nyäya as a whole. The peculiarity of their theory of negation is that one can see the absence of an object in a given place. It includes the Sanskrit texts and translations of the Abhäva-väda of Gangesa and the Nañ-väda of Raghunätha. Though written for both Sanskritists and philosophers, the frequent use of Sanskrit terms almost requires that the reader be a Sanskritist--though (...)

    The Foundations of Empiricism. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (3):585-585.
    In this lecture Evans studies one of the basic presuppositions of empiricism: the central doctrine of the theory of meaning of propositions, with special reference to the cleavage between verbal definition—the defining of words by reference to other words—and ostensive definition—the defining of a word by "pointing" to its object. The author shows that ostensive definition is wholly inadequate to the task of defining such words as nouns and adjectives—one can point only to their instances in the world and not (...)

    Languages with Expressions of Infinite Length. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):154-154.
    The infinitary languages studied in this book are those in which quantification of infinitely many variables simultaneously, and conjunctions or alternations of infinitely many are permitted. Infinitary concatenation and infinitary propositional logics are first discussed, and a completeness theorem is proved about the latter. The later chapters deal with infinitary predicate languages and Scott's proof of incompleteness is introduced. Throughout the discussion, unsolved problems are mentioned and areas undergoing current development are emphasized. A short bibliography lists most recent articles on (...)

    This is not a textbook in mathematical physics—excepting for one chapter one need not possess much more than geometry and elementary algebra—rather it is a philosophically reflective examination of the cardinal features of special relativity theory. Throughout the book Bohm is not merely doing physics, but thinking about doing physics as well. This metatheoretical reflexion appears in chapters concerning pre-Einsteinian notions of relativity, attempts to save the aether theories, the "ambiguity" of space-time measurements in the new cosmology, "common sense" notions (...)

    A book of this title needs indeed to be written, but it should be done so after careful study of at least Bhävaviveka's Tarka-jvälä which is preserved in Tibetan. The historical and doctrinal relationships of the four major Buddhist schools, the Vaibhäsikas, the Sauträntikas, the Yogäcärins, and Mädhyamikas, are sufficiently complex that a book of this small size could only present a bare outline of their emergence. And even such an outline can be accurately made only after the pursuit of (...)

    Fundamentals of the Buddhist Tantras. [REVIEW]J. H. P. - 1970 - Review of Metaphysics 23 (3):560-560.
    This is a translation of a catalogue of Buddhist Tantra written by a student of the Tibetan teacher Tsong-kha-pa. The author, Mkhas-grub-rje, was thoroughly familiar with the whole of the Tantra preserved in Tibet, and thus the book serves as a most valuable source of hitherto unavailable information. The book catalogues the four divisions of Tantra by way of books, practitioners, rites, and tenets. There is a great deal of discussion on the varieties of acceptances with respect to those subjects, (...)

    Formal Systems and Recursive Functions. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1965 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (1):161-162.
    This is a collection of papers read at an international logic colloquium held at Oxford in 1963. The first half contains articles on intuitionistic and modal logics, the propositional calculus, and languages with infinitely long expressions by such logicians as Kripke, Bull, Harrop, and Tait. The second part is primarily concerned with recursive functions and features a monograph by Crossley on constructive order types, as well as contributions by Goodstein, Schütte, and Wang, among others. Especially noteworthy is Kripke's paper which (...)

    Untersuchungen Zur Operativen Logik der Gegenwart. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (3):598-599.
    This book is an attempt to relate the operative and constructive formulation of symbolic logic carried out by Lorenzen—and to a lesser degree Kolmogorov and Markov—to both Wittgenstein's philosophy of logic as set forth in the Tractatus and later modified in the Investigations, and to Brouwer's critique of classical logic, especially the principles of excluded middle. The first chapter contains an exposition of Wittgenstein's critical analysis of the "mythical" views of Russell and Frege; and it develops his own "operative" theory (...)

    Notions de Logique Formelle. [REVIEW]J. M. P. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 19 (4):809-809.
    Dopp is one of the very few logicians writing in French today, and so there are few textbooks of logic in that language. This is the newest one, and it is concerned essentially with the propositional and first-order predicate calculi, from both their historical as well as contemporary aspects. After examining the concepts of classical logic, Dopp presents the propositional calculus as a calculus of truth-functions and then gives it an axiomatic underpinning. In the treatment of quantification, first traditional logic (...)
