"Five major papers and fifteen comments and replies constitute this volume of the Proceedings of the First Bristol Conference on Critical Philosophy. Each explores a dimension of the relationships between practical reason, theoretical reason, and morality. Several present viewpoints and hypotheses not previously advanced. The range of scope and depth indicates a freedom from editorial restriction and provides a feeling of being present at the conference. . . . Philosophy and rhetoric share the boundary of practical reason. This volume provides thought-provoking illumination for some of the contiguous territories. It shows philosophers reasoning practically."?Philosophy and Rhetoric

"This book contains papers, comments, and replies of a conference on practical reasoning. The main papers . . . are . . . about the logic of moral reasoning, individual versus social preference orderings, the relation between practical and theoretical reasoning, reason and violence in political ideology, and Kant's concept of practical reason."?Library Journal
