    Vorträge und Aufsätze. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1956 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (1):177-177.
    Eleven essays, on a variety of topics, most of them first given as lectures or published in periodicals and Festschriften. This is "late" Heidegger --alternately brilliant and mystifying, provocative and exasperating, at least to the uninitiated. Perhaps the best pieces in the book are the three which discuss passages in pre-Socratic philosophers--here, familiar texts are given fresh, if unorthodox, interpretations, and are made to suggest philosophical conclusions of remarkable subtlety and scope. --V. C. C.

    The Rise of Scientific Philosophy. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1956 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (2):369-369.
    Reprints a useful, non-technical statement of Reichenbach's mature thought, combining an unconvincing survey of speculative philosophy and its "failure," with a concise account of the results of a philosophy carried out "scientifically." The original appeared in 1951.--V. C. C.

    The texts of the papers on the philosophy of science read at the Zürich Congress of 1954. The papers vary widely, in scope, quality, approach, doctrinal basis, and subject matter, but the collection as a whole, if a bit bewildering, provides a good survey of the ways in which the philosophy of science is now being practiced and conceived.--V.

    A History of Modern Criticism. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1955 - Review of Metaphysics 9 (2):365-365.
    The first two volumes of a four-volume study, destined surely to become the standard work in its field. Literary criticism in the broadest sense is the book's subject, but the author tries to avoid purely philosophical aesthetics at one extreme--Kant is given 3 pages to Schiller's 24--as well as unsubstantiated judgments of taste at the other. Since he tries to see the past as bearing upon and productive of the literary theory of the present, the book might be said to (...)

    A Modern Philosophy of Religion. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1955 - Review of Metaphysics 9 (1):164-164.
    A comprehensive, carefully argued and clearly written statement and defense of philosophical theism. The author is concerned with religion itself as an object of philosophical inquiry, but is more interested in the insights into the natures of man, God, and the world, which a religious, or theistic, viewpoint is able to provide. He offers an interesting reformulation and defense of the cosmological argument for the existence of God.--V. C. C.

  16. Being and Becoming: An Essay Towards a Critical Metaphysic. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1955 - Review of Metaphysics 9 (1):160-160.
    The author attempts "a critical rethinking of the metaphysics of the Aristotelian and Thomistic tradition." There is no single argument or theme, but rather a series of fairly distinct though interrelated treatments of the main topics of Thomistic metaphysics--being, the thinking of being, analogy, substance, causation, etc. Father Hawkins tries always, on the basis of certain traditional presuppositions, to think through a problem in his own way, often in the light of contemporary developments in metaphysical theory, and to express his (...)

"When is a Principle a Moral Principle?" and "Sensing and Observing." Participants include Gilbert Ryle, Margaret MacDonald, A. J. Ayer and W. B. Gallie.

It marks, historically, one of the earliest expressions of that revived Thomism which has played such a large part in the intellectual life of contemporary France; and it represents, systematically, one of the most detailed and persistent "intellectualist" answers to the Bergsonian critique of "intellectualist" philosophies.

    A volume of philosophical essays, somewhat similar in format to J. H Muirhead's two collections of thirty years ago. Instead of offering general summaries of their thinking, however, most of the present contributors exhibit their conceptions of philosophy and its problems by dealing with particular questions, as if writing for a professional journal. Biographical material has been compressed and placed in an appendix at the book's end. The result is less personal and perhaps less historically informative than the earlier volumes, (...)

This and other "departures from systematized Thomism" give the book a certain originality, and raise it somewhat above the usual textbook level.--V. C. C.

    The thesis of this brief but suggestive essay in interpretation is that Kant's critical works express a unified "Weltanschauung" whose determining principles are ethical rather than epistemological. The argument is subtle and complex, and is supported by references more to the spirit than to the letter of the Kantian writings; its consequent difficulty, however, is more than outweighed by its breadth and illuminatory power. In his concern with the relations between morals and religion for Kant, and in his emphasis upon (...)

The author argues that logistic, like mathematics, has to do with uninterpreted formal calculi, which may or may not be interpreted logically, whereas logic concerns the identity of concepts; logistic calculi, far from replacing logic, are said instead to presuppose it. Such conclusions are certainly controversial, but they (...)

    Le poème de Parménide. Epiméthée. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (3):535-535.
    A new translation of Parmenides' poem, preceded by a long introduction. M. Beaufret's attitude towards, and interpretation of, the Parmenidean fragments have been influenced heavily by Heidegger, as has, in some cases, his choice of readings. The Greek is included, however, on pages facing the translation, and departures from the standard text of Kranz are noted.--V. C. C.

    Le Temps. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1956 - Review of Metaphysics 10 (2):368-368.
    A brief survey of topics having to do in some way with "time," in a number of that term's myriad senses. There are chapters on "lived" time, the times of physics and history, and the relation of time and eternity. M. Pucelle's writing is lively, and his discussions are frequently illuminating, despite their extreme brevity and, at times, over-generality.--V. C. C.

    Logische Wirklichkeitsstruktur und personaler Seinsgrund. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1955 - Review of Metaphysics 9 (1):157-158.
    An attempt to discover the most fundamental "logical" categories or principles of unity which lie at the basis and determine the structure of all reality. The three central principles or categories are "Wissen," "Wollen," and "Ichheit," from which it is clear that reality has a personal basis and that its fundamental structure is that of a self or person. The presentation is highly compressed and often obscure, but there is much in it that is suggestive.--V. C. C.

    Mental Acts. [REVIEW]C. C. V. - 1958 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (4):691-691.
    An effective demonstration that the techniques of Oxford analysis can be put to constructive as well as to critical philosophic use. Mr. Geach considers a number of connected topics--among them the nature and formation of concepts, judgment, and sensation--advancing positive theses while rejecting views he holds to be false. He is particularly opposed to the "abstractionist" doctrine of concept formation. Concepts, he holds, are not capacities for recognizing recurrent features in experience, but "mental abilities, exercised in acts of judgment, and (...)
