Reviewer's comments: Articles in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research are approximately 15 to 20 pages in length. The 1985 edition comprised 702 pages, in which were 36 articles, two discussions and 12 book reviews. There are occasion ally symposia on selected topics. The articles it publishes are highly technical and analytical rather than expository. They represent original work, although one finds here also many close analyses of the doctrines of classical philosophers that are re levant to contemporary issues. It publishes on a wide range of issues in the philosophy of mind, ethics, metaphysics and philosophical history of philosophy. Articles appear to be chosen on the basis of timeliness and merit rather than on adherence to a specific methodological approach. Despite the reference to phenomenology in the title, most of the 1985 articles exhibit a close familiarity with the vocabulary of, and representative figures in, contemporary Anglo-American philosophy.
