    Experiments Against Reality: The Fate of Culture in the Postmodern Age. [REVIEW]Peter A. Redpath - 2001 - Review of Metaphysics 55 (1):145-146.
    Roger Kimball is managing editor of The New Criterion, an art critic for the London Spectator, and a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal. Not the sort of credentials we might expect from a metaphysician. Still, since many modern and contemporary “metaphysicians” are actually poets masquerading as philosophers, Kimball’s metaphysical analysis is an instance of the delicious irony that philosophy’s history often plays on hubristic intellectuals: the nonprofessional must enter the scene to show the so-called experts how to do (...)

    Metaphysics and Its Task: The Search for the Categorial Foundation of Knowledge. [REVIEW]Peter A. Redpath - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (3):695-698.
    “With the boundless arrogance of a man of the Enlightenment, Kant claimed in the introduction to Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics that ‘he who undertakes to judge or, more, to construct a system of metaphysics must satisfy the demands here made, either by applying my solution or by thoroughly refuting it and substituting another. To evade it is impossible’”. With this startling and accurate estimation of Kant’s hubris, Jorge Gracia begins his concluding chapter of Metaphysics and Its Task. Evidently, Gracia (...)

    Terza Navigatione: Nichilismo E Metafisica. [REVIEW]Peter A. Redpath - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (1):165-166.
    Vittorio Possenti’s Terza Navigatione is a much welcome and needed ado about nothing. More precisely, it is much ado about the nihilism that presently smothers Western philosophy and culture. Mired in nihilism, contemporary philosophy and culture attempt to comprehend themselves, and get lost in a nihilistic smog. Instead of recognizing the essentially nihilistic nature of the intellectual confusion that confronts them, contemporary philosophy and culture tend to see this nihilism in accidental forms, such as consumerism, moral relativism, technocracy. As Possenti (...)

  5. Masquerade of the Dream Walkers: Prophetic Theology From the Cartesians to Hegel.Peter A. Redpath (ed.) - 1998 - Brill | Rodopi.
    Through extensive textual analysis, this book concludes that the prevailing opinion about the nature of modern and contemporary philosophy is wrong. It maintains that almost all modern and contemporary philosophy is deconstructed, secularized, Augustinian theology, not philosophy. The work is divided into eight chapters, a guest Foreword by Herbert I. London notes, bibliography, and an index. Chapter 1 considers Cartesian thought, Hobbes, and Newton. Chapter 2 examines Locke, Berkeley, and Hume. Chapter 3 investigates Lessing and Rousseau. Chapters 4 and 5 (...)

    Justice in the New World Order: Reduction of Justice to Tolerance in the New Totalitarian World State.Peter A. Redpath - 2011 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2011 (157):185-192.
    ExcerptThe new world “order” is a complicated, emerging political “disorder” with remote historical roots in Cartesian and Enlightenment sophistry and secularized Protestant theology, not in philosophy.1 Because the “new world order” is complicated, understanding justice in the new world order is also complicated. Proximately, the new world order began as the brainchild of some well-meaning Western intellectuals just after the end of World War II, as a means to heal what at least one leading Catholic philosopher of the time, Jacques (...)

    Analytic Philosophy: RIP.Peter A. Redpath - 1999 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1999 (116):147-152.
    This book is a devastating and anomalous critique of analytic philosophy. It is devastating, because of its detailed exposition of analytic philosophy as a failed project. It is anomalous, because the exposition involves writing a detailed history of the analytic movement, an activity that analysts have scrupulously avoided. According to Capaldi, while analytic philosophy pretends to express a timeless explanation about everything, the movement has always sought to justify its existence by ultimate appeal to a progressive historical account, and rests (...)

    Moral Foundations of Constitutional Thought: Current Problems, Augustinian Prospects.Peter A. Redpath - 1993 - Review of Metaphysics 46 (4):879-881.
    The title of Walker's book gives a felicitous summary of the content of the work as a whole. The book is mainly an analysis of contemporary difficulties in constitutional theory which, the author contends, rest upon some foundation in morals; and it proposes a solution to these difficulties purported to be found in the thought of St. Augustine. The chapter titles are, "Normative Impasses in Contemporary Constitutional Theory," "The Moral Anatomy of Contemporary Constitutional Theory," "Augustine's Political Ethics: Skepticism, Ultimacy, and (...)

    Inquisitorial Tolerance.Peter A. Redpath - 1998 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1998 (113):170-172.
    Modern philosophy assumes that tolerance is part of modernity's essence. It views tolerance as humanity's voice of conscience, nature's moral law, through which the human spirit progresses. As such, tolerance is one of modernity's sacred cows, a conflated metaphysical and moral principle. Weissberg is an arch-defender of thoughtful tolerance, who finds intolerable the growing misunderstanding of tolerance. His general thesis is that, properly understood, tolerance is a political, not an attitudinal concept. He contends that, increasingly during this century, Americans have (...)

    A Companion to Philosophy in the Middle Ages.Peter A. Redpath - 2004 - Review of Metaphysics 58 (2):436-438.
    Scholars who have engaged in the process often refer to editing as a “thankless job.” While preparing their encyclopedic A Companion to Philosophy in the Middle Ages, Jorge J. E. Gracia and Timothy B. Noone might well have had this sort of feeling. They might still have it. The task they undertook was much needed, enormous, one might reasonably call it “overly ambitious,” and virtually impossible to fulfill. Few contemporary editors could match their achievement. Yet they are likely to receive (...)

  25. Aristotelian-Thomistic Philosophy of Measure and The: International System of Units Correlation of International System of Units with the Philosophy of Aristotle and St. Thomas.Peter A. Redpath - 1996 - Upa.
    Dealing with the metaphysical foundations of modern physical science, this book demonstrates that not only is classical metaphysics not in conflict with the principles of modern experimental science but that, when analogously transferred to the different divisions of modern science, the metaphysical principle of unity makes intelligible all the laws of modern science. This revolutionary book provides the means for reestablishing the unity of science by interpreting the whole of modern experimental science from the perspective of an analogous transfer of (...)

  26. Cartesian Nightmare: An Introduction to Transcendental Sophistry.Peter A. Redpath - 1997 - Brill | Rodopi.
    This book challenges the presupposition among professional philosophers that René Descartes is the Father of Modern Philosophy. It demonstrates by intensive textual analysis of Descartes's _Discourse_ and _Meditations_ that he inaugurated a new type of sophistry rather than a new way of conducting philosophy. Transcendental Sophistry is a synthesis of Renaissance humanism and Christian theology, especially the theology of creation. This striking re-evaluation of the achievement of Descartes opens the history of Western philosophy to radical reinterpretation.

    Gabriel Marcel and the Recovery of Philosophy in Our Time.Peter A. Redpath - 2006 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 80 (3):343-353.
    In this paper, I take for granted that, today, something is radically wrong metaphysically with Western culture. I maintain that this problem arises, as Marcelsays, from the very depths of our being. This paper’s purpose is to consider some aspects of Marcel’s metaphysical teaching, especially about our need tostart philosophizing in the concrete, not the abstract, situation, to battle against the spirit of abstraction, and use these reflections for the practical purpose ofconsidering what sorts of steps we need to take (...)
