    Beyond the Beyond or Science and Immortality. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1966 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (1):155-155.
    Dr. Littleton's book is valuable as a brief but stimulating introduction for the non-scientific layman to various physical data. However, the author's central purpose is to demonstrate that science and religion are compatible by using these data as proof that "science" recognizes the infinite. While some enlightening points are made, Dr. Littleton vitiates his main purpose by making highly problematic philosophical statements with no reasoned support at all.—S. A. S.

    Christianity and Existentialism. [REVIEW]A. E. S. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (1):187-187.
    These essays do a rather thorough and sometimes exciting job of articulating the encounter between Christianity and contemporary philosophies of existence. Earle, representing the "opposition," puts the case for Nietzsche and Sartre quite convincingly. Edie's treatment of Heidegger might have been more subtle and suffers from the closeness with which Edie links Heidegger with Tillich. Wild's essays, without a doubt the most interesting but most perplexing in the collection, appear to be at once orthodox and revolutionary, with an overall Bultmannian (...)

    Christ for Us in the Theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (2):383-384.
    A clear, complete, and detailed account of the German theological influences on Bonhoeffer, as well as the stages in the movement of his own thinking toward the shattering and prophetic suggestions in the Letters and Papers from Prison. Unfortunately, the book devotes only sixty pages to the direct examination of these final suggestions, which have touched a live nerve in recent theological thought, and is disappointingly hesitant about investigating the possible ramifications of Bonhoeffer's ideas, which point in at least two (...)

    Coming Into Existence. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (2):387-387.
    A popular reworking and extension of the works of Prescott Lecky, forerunner of the "third force" in American psychology, known variously as humanistic, perceptual, transactionist, existential. While the book is highly readable, full of good advice, and pointed in the right direction, it is not even remotely adequate to the difficulty of the subject matter. However, the treatment of coming-into-existence is sensitive.--S. A. S.

    Emotion in the Thought of Sartre. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1968 - Review of Metaphysics 22 (2):376-376.
    The dream of graduate students: an excellent dissertation which developed into an excellent book--scholarly, complete, and unbiased. Sartre's central claims are that emotional response is intentional, signifying an object evaluated, and an emotional response is an act, a chosen response which attempts to "magically" transform a situation too difficult for ordinary instrumental solutions. Fell accepts Sartre's first thesis, but argues that the chosen action and self-deception of the second thesis are not definitive of all emotions, but are rather partially explanatory (...)

    Estetica: Teoria Della Formatività. [REVIEW]A. N. S. - 1963 - Review of Metaphysics 16 (4):806-807.
    A broad survey of the problem of aesthetics, founded on a dynamic and organismic conception of the work of art. The term "formativity" is coined to emphasize the primacy of the making process as against the implied stasis of "form," and what the author regards as the epiphenomenal nature of "expression." The definition, genesis, and internal economy of the work of art, and the problem of criticism are discussed. Contains little that is particularly new or original.--S. A. N.

    Faith Beyond Humanism. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (3):553-553.
    Dr. Williams first focuses on human faith, the creative power which seeks to change possibilities into actualities, and then extrapolates "God," a limited, struggling, experimenting teleological force in the universe as a whole, a force which can be addressed either as "Thou" or "It." Faith is not something which men can consciously control, not mere fancy, but a quasi-objective force which can control a man if he allows it to do so. The comments on problems such as the place of (...)

    Faith in a Secular Age. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 20 (3):553-553.
    A concise look at the present "revolt" in both the Protestant and Catholic churches, a revolt hopefully leading to the radical re-structuring of the church so that it may serve today's "secular age," an age freed from thinking imposed "from above". Man in the secular age refuses to separate out a piece of life and call it sacred or religious, but instead sees Christ at work in "the events of our time," and struggles with him against destructive forces. Although he (...)

    Forms in Plato's Later Dialogues. [REVIEW]A. S. S. - 1967 - Review of Metaphysics 21 (2):378-379.
    Do the later Platonic dialogues abandon the earlier doctrine of forms? If not, do the forms, as the objects or contents of thought, have any relation to experienced things? Schipper, in this lucid and scholarly study of the Parmenides, Theaetetus, Sophist, Philebus, and Timaeus, maintains that Plato continues to assume the essentials of the earlier doctrine of forms, and that while he offers no complete and explicit answer to the second question, the later dialogues do provide clues which are consistent (...)

    In a lyrical style befitting the nature of his subject-matter, Harper focuses on two kinds of love--man's love for the human and natural, and man's love for God-and attempts to show that both loves, eros and agape, are required for a love which satisfies the deepest human longing. This position is not so much arrived at as it is unfolded in a book which demands to be read many times. Harper turns primarily to the Song of Songs, St. John of (...)

    A useful exposition of the historical background and current disposition of problems involving religion and science both as separate and as related endeavors. Barbour combines the scientific knowledge of a physicist, the religious attitude of a liberal Protestant, and the philosophical approach of a Whiteheadian in attempting to present a "theology of nature." The book is repetitious, with the compensation that the chapters are thereby relatively independent units, with a summary at the end of each. The author, while not offering (...)

Here Banerjee tries to make out a case for metaphysics by showing philosophy as an independent discipline concerned with the analysis of the human situation. Of special interest is the author's effort to understand language in terms of the person and his concern with the nature of man as a being who is with others. Many insights of phenomenological philosophy are mirrored in this (...)

With clarity and insight the author explores various ethical theories and their relationships to one another, trying always to bring about an understanding of what is truly at stake in various theoretical controversies and to relate ethical theory to the business of morality itself.—S.

Ping admits that the language of faith is not literally sensible and hence cannot be objectively established as true, nor is it a strict construction according to ordinary usage. However, he maintains that religious language is nonetheless meaningful when seen in its context of encounter and commitment so that verification occurs in the determination of life.

In an earlier volume he dealt primarily with theories of human nature, metaphysics and psychology. Here his concern is with moral experience and values. Crocker traces the advance of utilitarianism and nihilism as they undermined the traditional solutions to man's moral problems, viz., Christianity and Natural Law. He shows how the political theories of the France of the eighteenth century were shaped by metaphysical and (...)

    Personality and the Good: Psychological and Ethical Perspectives. [REVIEW]A. E. S. - 1964 - Review of Metaphysics 18 (1):171-171.
    The authors' intention is to explore themes of related interest to both psychological and ethical disciplines. Their treatment of the problems in the twilight zone between these disciplines is insightful. The underlying theme is that a psychology of personality fails to articulate its subject matter if it reduces the ought to the is but that a theory of the good must take cognizance of the manner in which the ought finds its roots in the is.—S.

    This latest volume of the Husserliana continues the process of making available to a wider philosophical public the treasure of Husserl's unpublished writings at Louvain, formerly accessible only to a limited circle. Much of the work of later phenomenological psychologists is foreshadowed in this volume. After acknowledging the contributions of Dilthey and Brentano, Husserl proceeds to apply the analytical method of transcendental phenomenology as formulated in the Ideen to the concrete constitution of the living subject in the world.
