An academic philosopher's critique of the philosophy of Richard Price. Dull.
Too abstract. He uses the typical academic technique of taking a relatively
straight-forward text, interpreting it in a strange way, analyzing the strange
interpretation, finding fault with it, and concluding that maybe this is not
what the author really meant. He is sympathetic with Price and shows him to
be the precursor of modern intuitionist moral philosophers. Price seems to
get no further than the modern British philosophers. There is less here than
meets the eye.
