    Motivation and the Moral Sense in Francis Hutcheson’s Ethical Theory. [REVIEW]R. P. - 1973 - Review of Metaphysics 26 (3):538-539.
    Jensen limits himself mainly to the early work of Hutcheson, i.e., Inquiry Concerning Moral Good and Evil and Essay on the Nature and Conduct of the Passions and Affections, with brief mention of his later work. This seems to be quite justified in that the more interesting and perhaps more creative work of Hutcheson appears in his earlier writings. The main thrust of this study is to examine Hutcheson’s theory of motivation and his moral sense theory, first individually and then (...)

    The Evaluation of Pleasure in Plato's Ethics.R. P. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (3):546-546.
    A detailed study of Plato's treatment of hedonism in the Protagoras, Gorgias, Phaedo, Republic, and Philebus. The work is more noteworthy for its attention to a field hitherto out of focus in studies of this length than for its insight.--R. P.

    An Essay on the Foundations of Our Knowledge.R. P. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):717-717.
    A well-written translation of Cournot's Essai sur les fondements de nos connaissances et sur les caractères de la critique philosophique. The author, little known in this country except for his work in mathematics and economics, first published this work in 1851. The Essay is part rationalism, part empiricism. The first half of the Essay argues for Cournot's theory of knowledge; the second relates his theory to problems of mathematics, logic, law, history, psychology, ethics, esthetics, and to his philosophical predecessors. It (...)

    Hegel. [REVIEW]L. P. R. - 1973 - Review of Metaphysics 27 (2):410-410.
    Professor Plant has presented a briefer treatment of Hegel’s philosophical development than did H. S. Harris in Towards the Sunlight, and a considerably more historical, epistemological and metaphysical treatment than is presented in Pelcynski’s Hegel; Political Philosophy and not so exhaustive an account of the political and social philosophy as appears in Avineri’s Hegel’s Philosophy of the Modern State. These four books taken together testify to the importance of Hegel on the contemporary philosophic scene. Plant’s volume is perhaps the best (...)

    Anarchy, State, and Utopia. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1976 - Review of Metaphysics 30 (1):134-135.
    Perhaps no work since John Rawls’ A Theory of Justice has attracted as much recent attention as Robert Nozick’s case for a minimal state—an ingeniously argued critique, not only of antinomian individualism, but also of liberal and socialist contractualism. It might be added that the book is no solace either to more conservative political theorists, who lament state incursion into private life, but whose political structures exhibit either actual or potential constriction of human life. Nozick’s book is both a searching (...)

    Modern Deductive Logic. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 24 (4):740-741.
    This introduction to formal logic is one of the few paperbacks available that provides a broad survey of the field. In addition to a clear presentation of sentential and first order quantificational logic, there is a discussion of the philosophical significance of recent work by Church, Gödel, and Tarski. The proof technique employed throughout is the indirect argument. Since proofs of this sort can be converted into mechanical tests of validity, it is easier than most for a beginning student to (...)

    Therapeia, Plato's Conception of Philosophy. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 12 (1):143-143.
    This study of the Platonic prescription for ignorance reveals the author to be both an excellent writer and a sensitive reader of Plato. The Plato he reads is rather close to Socrates; the late dialogues, concerned as they are with the "development of a more capacious ontology," are for the most part left out of account.--R. P.

    In this well-bred polemic against Christianity, the "romantic religion," the author speaks from the standpoint of a devout Jew. He is most challenging in his reading of the Gospels as the history of a Jew among Jews, "manifesting...what is pure and good in Judaism," except so far as it has been unfortunately obscured by a later and less-admirable Pauline theology.--R.

    Theory of Meaning. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 24 (3):556-557.
    This useful anthology contains selections from classical as well as contemporary authors on the subject of meaning. Although these are not arranged chronologically, the reader is made aware of the difference of purpose and approach between those philosophers trying to bolster and empiricism by a theory of meaning and those philosophers and linguists who find an intrinsic interest in the subject. Of particular interest is the juxtaposition of an essay by William Alston in which the shortcomings of the referential, ideational (...)

    Wittgenstein and Justice. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1973 - Review of Metaphysics 27 (2):409-410.
    Despite the title, this book is really an introduction to the study of the later philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein, and the significance of his way of philosophizing for problems in social and political thought. As the author points out, Wittgenstein was not a political theorist; he "did not write about society or history or revolution or alienation". The author, obviously conversant with the work and methodology of Wittgenstein, has written a work ad mentem magistri, not attempting to isolate specific doctrine (...)

    The Pluralist and the Possibilist Aspects of the Scientific Enterprise. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1974 - Review of Metaphysics 27 (4):804-805.
    This is a study in what Naess calls the "new historiography of science," i.e., the view that science is and has been discontinuous, non-accumulative, and somewhat arbitrary. Readers familiar with the controversy between Thomas Kuhn and Karl Popper will undoubtedly note that Naess attempts to achieve a synthesis of their opposed positions. Against Popper, Naess argues there is no standard of rejection and refutation for theories in science that will bear the weight of both the history and present practice of (...)

    In the Twilight of Christendom, Hegel Vs. Kierkegaard on Faith and History. [REVIEW]L. P. R. - 1973 - Review of Metaphysics 27 (1):122-122.
    Professor Crites comes to his task with deep personal sympathy for and philosophic commitment to each of the protagonists in his volume. The subject of Crites’ work is not the tension of faith and history with which we are familiar in the works of Strauss, Baur, Feuerbach, Renan, and M. Arnold, but rather the tension of Christianity and culture. Crites chooses for his departure the notion and analogy of "domesticity," the accommodation, or lack thereof, of the gospel and the world.

    The Concept of Meaninglessness. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 24 (3):540-541.
    Although it now seems clear that no verificationalist [[sic]] account of the necessary and sufficient conditions for meaningful discourse is adequate, many philosophers still hope that some general criterion will be formulated. This book is an attempt to supply such a theory. It opens with a discussion of the various views of meaninglessness that have been proposed during this century. Taking operationalism, verificationalism, [[sic]] and the category mistake theory in turn, Erwin provides an analysis of their shortcomings. In addition to (...)

    Determinism and Indeterminism in Modern Physics. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (4):717-717.
    This work, which first appeared in 1936, offers in addition to an historical treatment displaying Cassirer's characteristic insight, an analysis of quantum mechanics largely unaffected by subsequent development in the field. The author argues, on the basis of epistemological considerations, that quantum mechanics necessitates no major revisions in our basic understanding of causality. The new laws simply refer to "definite collectives" rather than things or events and are no less determinate than the old. In the final part the author stresses (...)

    This addition to the Comparative Studies of Cultures and Civilizations is more sharply focussed than its predecessor, Studies in Chinese Thought. Although the subject matters spans 2,500 years these twelve essays are primarily concerned with some aspect of the "use of Confucian ideas in political struggles and socio-political institutions." The authors are not so much contributing to the "history of ideas" as they are illustrating the relationships between thought and action in detailed studies of one non-Western culture.

    Protestant Thought in the Nineteenth Century. [REVIEW]L. P. R. - 1973 - Review of Metaphysics 27 (1):165-165.
    This survey of the history of Protestant thought in the nineteenth century is founded upon two major methodological principles. The first is the hard-nosed avoidance of the national history approach. In spite of the continuity in certain nations of specific theological traditions there is another sense in which the varying efforts of Protest theology struggled to answer the same questions. Welch chose to ignore, as far as possible, national boundaries and concentrate on what can usefully be called the "Victorian era" (...)

    The Liberal Temper in Greek Politics. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (4):692-692.
    The author is concerned with resurrecting the political doctrines which supported the Greek democracies. He finds them in the Greek anthropologists, Anaximander, Anaxagoras, Archelaus, and Democritus, and in Protagoras and Antiphon. Their empirical approach to history produced a body of thought suggestive of Hume and Dewey which was both democratic in character and liberal in temper. Furthermore, this position was until now obscured by the Platonic and Aristotelian concern with authority and law and with the essential nature of the individual--the (...)

    A Profile of Mathematical Logic. [REVIEW]P. M. R. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 24 (4):745-745.
    This volume gives an overview of the subject of mathematical logic, placing primary emphasis on theory instead of the development of skills. It contains chapters on the history of logic, first and second order quantification theory, metatheory, and some of the philosophical implications of recent work in the field. Needless to say, none of these topics is treated in any great detail owing to the space limitations. Care has been taken by the author, however, to insure that his discussions do (...)

    Averroes' Commentary on Plato's "Republic". [REVIEW]P. R. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (3):511-511.
    A critical edition, with translation and notes, of Samuel's 14th century Hebrew translation, otherwise available only in Mantinus' 1539 Latin translation from the Hebrew. The translator's English is surprisingly intelligible in view of the difficulties of the text which are helpfully indicated and discussed in the notes. The commentary itself is especially interesting as an instance of the influence of Aristotle on the Medieval Platonic tradition. Republic I and X are explicitly ignored as containing "no proof except by accident" and (...)

    Philosophy of Atomic Physics. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1959 - Review of Metaphysics 12 (3):493-493.

    Progress in the Age of Reason. [REVIEW]P. R. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (3):517-517.
    A study in important aspects of the history of an idea from the 17th century to the present. The author believes that the Enlightenment founded progress on a natural law open to the rational powers of man. Following the work of Hobbes, Rousseau and Hume, progress could be justified only by reducing it to the status of an historical or sociological law, as in Hegel, Marx and Toynbee. The author's "sociology of historians" in the 17th century is especially well done.--R. (...)
