    The Scientific Image. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1982 - Review of Metaphysics 35 (3):636-638.
    The doctrine of scientific realism has once again come into the center of attention for many philosophers of science, although of course the approaches, arguments, and emphases have somewhat changed. This book is an excellent entree to the current debates on this topic, as seen by van Fraassen who is probably the most direct and severe opponent of scientific realism. What is at stake is nothing less than the ultimate goal of science and the significance of its theories.

    A Realist Theory of Science. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1980 - Review of Metaphysics 33 (3):619-620.
    First published in 1975 by Leeds Books Ltd., this second, revised edition adds only a short, twelve page Postscript and an Index. The former replies to reviews of the original edition by clarifying the use of two key terms, by commenting on its principal weaknesses, and by indicating the direction of further work required by the position advocated.

    Criticism and the Growth of Knowledge. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1970 - Review of Metaphysics 24 (2):349-349.
    During the past decade some of the most provocative and controversial disputes concerning the philosophy and history of science have centered about the work of Thomas Kuhn and Sir Karl Popper. One, therefore, looks with anticipation to this volume which is based on a symposium held in July, 1965 where Kuhn, Popper and several of Popper's former students met for an intellectual confrontation. But the result is depressing. The volume is an editorial mess. Two of the main scheduled speakers never (...)

    Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right'. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (1):131-132.
    Despite the enormous and growing interest in Marx and the availability of Marx's writing in paperback, it is scandalous how little care has been taken in producing careful texts and English translations of Marx's work. O'Malley's edition is an outstanding exception. It is carefully and intelligently edited. The result makes available an extremely interesting text of Marx. A number of scholars have already argued that in this early critique, one can discover some of the earliest formulations of distinctive Marxian themes. (...)

    Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1962 - Review of Metaphysics 15 (4):681-681.
    A new translation which is eminently readable and extremely accurate. Much of the awkwardness and unnecessary obscurity of the Ogden translation has been eliminated. The comprehensive index which combines both English and German expressions is designed to meet the special problems involved in understanding the Tractatus. Unfortunately Russell's introduction to the 1922 edition is reproduced without any indication of the controversy concerning Russell's interpretation, or subsequent interpretations of the Tractatus.--R.

    Conjectures and Refutations: The Growth of Scientific Knowledge. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (1):150-150.
    A provocative collection of technical and popular essays dealing with a variety of scientific and political topics which Popper has treated in his major works. For the most part Popper develops, sharpens, and extends to new areas, themes which he has already explored. The major theme running through the essays is that knowledge grows by unjustified and unjustifiable anticipations, guesses and conjectures. These are controlled by criticisms and refutations. Theories can never be positively justified; they can only prove to be (...)

    The Basic Writings of Bertrand Russell. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (1):153-153.
    A sampler of Russell's writings from 1963 to 1959 which provides representative selections from his multifarious writings. The book is designed more for the general reader than for the scholar interested in piecing together the complex mosaic of the man and his work. There is a preface by Bertrand Russell. Handsomely printed, the total effect shows once again how unique and many-sided is this twentieth-century intellectual explorer.--R. J. B.

    The Explanation of Behavior. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (2):387-387.
    The central issue that concerns Taylor is the opposition between the claims of mechanistic and teleological explanation of human behavior. This presupposes that we are clear about what is at issue here. The first part of this book is dedicated to a conceptual untangling of the skein of issues involved. Taylor then turns to a careful examination of the mechanistic type of explanation characteristic of behavioristically oriented psychologies. He argues that these fail to account adequately for distinctively human behavior. But (...)

    Linguistics in Philosophy.J. B. R. - 1970 - New Scholasticism 44 (3):469-469.
    During the first half of the present century a number of outstanding philosophers realized that language theory could profitably be viewed as far more than merely a means of studying one among the many human faculties, or merely sharpening the tool we use to philosophize - they realized that there is a sense in which philosophy of language comprises (almost) the whole of philosophy. This was the famous linguistic turn: philosophers came to accept that everything that is is in a (...)

    Marx's Concept of Man. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1961 - Review of Metaphysics 15 (1):191-191.
    Includes the best and most complete English translation of Marx's controversial Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844 by T. B. Bottomore. Fromm in his introductory essay argues that Marx's philosophy of man is to be found in these manuscripts; it is a "spiritual existentialism in secular language." Fromm skirts some difficult problems of Marxist interpretation, and the concept of man that is attributed to Marx resembles the sentimental socialism which Marx so bitterly attacked.--R. J. B.

    The "Mental" and the "Physical.". [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1969 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (4):752-752.
    This paperback consists of a reprint of Feigl's now famous paper published originally in Volume II of the Minnesota Studies in the Philosophy of Science and a short postscript written ten years after. When Feigl first published his article, his main concern was to show that linguistic philosophy had not succeeded in showing that the problems involved in understanding mind and body were linguistic pseudo-problems. And he developed in great detail the outlines of a proposed solution to the problems. The (...)

    Zettel. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (1):158-158.
    In the past few years there has been an attempt to publish a variety of Wittgenstein's unpublished notes, scraps, and clippings. While the publication of his early Notebooks was an important contribution for understanding Wittgenstein's Tractarian period, the value of some of the other material published is dubious. The Zettel consists of a collection of fragments that Wittgenstein himself put in a box-file. Many of the clippings are taken from other manuscripts and most of these are taken from typescripts dictated (...)

    Studies in the Philosophy of Wittgenstein. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1970 - Review of Metaphysics 23 (4):756-756.
    It is difficult to see what is the purpose of this collection of articles. Numerous full-length works have appeared dealing with various aspects of Wittgenstein's philosophy as well as several anthologies of articles about Wittgenstein. While the articles here are of a high quality and were written especially for this volume, there seems to be no principle of unity or selection here. Winch's introduction stresses the unity of Wittgenstein's philosophy, but it is too brief to resolve the many questions which (...)

    Morality and the Language of Conduct. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 17 (2):312-312.
    Nine essays by leading American analytic philosophers. Frankena's article describes the recent changes of orientation in ethical inquiry and delineates the various positions advocated. Though there is little that is radically new in these essays, they are all of high quality. The essays are not representative of the variety of positions sketched by Frankena and the volume lacks any real unity. The price is outrageous and defeats the purpose of making these articles readily available.--R. J. B.

    A series of lectures reconstructed by G. J. Warnock from manuscript notes, in which Austin criticizes and exposes some of the standard arguments in the discussion of "sense-data." The cumulative effect of this small classic is to show the confusions which have infected the appeal to "sense-data," and to question the significance of such a concept.--R. J. B.

    The Bounds of Sense: An Essay on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (3):562-562.
    The key word in the title of this book is "essay," for Strawson has not written an introduction to Kant, nor a commentary on the Critique. It would be closer to truth to say that Strawson has attempted to extract and to translate into a contemporary idiom what he takes to be philosophically important in the Critique. Kant's major positive achievement, according to Strawson, is the partial carrying out of a certain program, viz., "that of determining the fundamental general structure (...)

    During the past decade no philosopher in the Anglo-Saxon world has been so thoroughly discussed, explicated and criticized as has been Wittgenstein. The Tractatus and the Tractarian period have been the subject of numerous articles, more than a half dozen books and commentaries, and an anthology of articles. Now Pitcher has collected some of the best articles that have been primarily concerned with the Investigations. Starting with Quinton's overview excerpted from his "Contemporary British Philosophy," and the important critical notices by (...)

    Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and the Sublime. [REVIEW]J. B. R. - 1961 - Review of Metaphysics 14 (3):569-569.
    A new and extremely readable translation of one of Kant's early works that helps to correct the austere picture of Kant which emerges from a concern only with his critical philosophy. Kant's observations on the differences between the sexes, and his classification of national characteristics are especially delightful. The entire work shows Kant in a more empirical mood than is to be found in the Critiques. The translator's introduction is helpful for understanding Kant's personality and early work, though the brief (...)

    A brilliant attempt to show how the Transcendental Deduction can be construed as a strict logical deduction. Using Kemp Smith's "pathwork" theory in a novel way, Wolff organizes his commentary around four versions of the main argument which reflect Kant's increasing philosophic subtlety. The heart of the commentary is an analysis of synthesis as a rule-directed mental activity. Throughout there is a judicious balance of historical, textual and philosophic analysis, making this a truly rich commentary.--R. J. B.
