Frederick Ferré is Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at the University of Georgia, and past president of the Metaphysical Society of America; he has also written other books such as Basic Modern Philosophy of Religion, God and Global Justice (God, the Contemporary Discussion Series), etc. He wrote in the Preface to this 1961 book, "This book is an attempt to fill the present striking need for an introduction to contemporary linguistic philosophy as it bears on theological discourse."

He begins by stating, "linguistic significance is the primary subject matter of philosophy." (Pg. 4) He adds, "the function of philosophy is to engage in analysis of the meaning of language." (Pg. 6) He explains, "confronted with a sentence which seems to assert something to be the case, we search for possible methods of its verification in order to grasp its meaning, but in some cases we can nowhere find ... a sense-experience which might in principle have the slightest relevance to determining the sentence's truth or falsehood.

Major positions are examined at a high level of philosophic scrutiny so that the book is very useful, perhaps essential, for anyone who wants to know just what is being said when specifically religious language is employed. Ferre's own analysis of such language has, for this reviewer, some unsatifactory features, but the book can hardly fail to to stimulate and seriously inform.
