Review by:
Jule Eisenbud

This is a collection of papers on questions philosophic by a militant anti- (and it must be said, non-) intuitionalist. The reader will be unable to suppress a certain excitement as he pirouettes and leaps with the author through all the 'burning' questions of epistemology, wondering what type of empiricist (radical, sceptical, humanistic) the author will finally reveal himself to be. An answer comes in an essay on Ethics, Casuistry and Life:

Healthy moral feeling … naturally revolts against scientific casuistry. It did so, very effectively, in Pascal's Provincial Letters and swept away Jesuit casuistry in a flood of moral indignation.
