Kearns (philosophy, State U. of New York) sees Descartes' problem not as establishing the existence of God, but rather coping with the conceptions of sense experience, its objects, and the causal understanding of the way the world works. By beginning with Descartes' work, his successes and failures, Kearns unfolds his own speech-act theory showing language to be an intentional activity that makes propositional thinking possible and gives us a conceptual structure to experience. His ideas are further bolstered by a thorough analysis of modern logic (with diagrams), and by a clear, thoughtful, and accessible writing style. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
