KIRKUS REVIEW

Eleven essays on various aspects of the problem of religious language are offered here. The contributors are American, British, and Continental scholars prominent in the field of linguistic analysis and include Eric Heller, I. T. Ramsey, Frederick Ferre, and others. The contributions were chosen by the editor to represent the present state of the dialogue between philosophy and theology, as it moves toward a new and revolutionary phase of constructive linguistic analysis. Two of the essays deal with the thought of Ludwig Wittgenstein, the primary source of the analytical positivist movement. The others treat various problems arising out of the central question of the relation of this movement to theological thought and statement. The result is a symposium which can be useful to the student in the area and of interest to more advanced scholars.
