Editorial Reviews


"A splendid vindication of analytic philosophy."--Times Literary Supplement

"An extraordinary account of the metaphorical character of religious language."--Commonweal

"Combines two excellent studies: the first is a critical analysis of theories of metaphor and topics in contemporary philosophy of language....the second is an examination of the way in which models and the metaphorical language based on them are understood in a critical realism concerning scientific explanation, and so can support the possibility of a critical realism in theology....Deserves to be widely read."--The Thomist

"Presents a clear, concise and forceful challenge to anti-realist views of religious discourse."--Review of Metaphysics

"I have little but praise for this study. The crisp insights of the conclusion are symptomatic of its lucidity and sophistication."--British Journal of Aesthetics

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
