This book stands first in a sequence of three volumes whose titles are Reason and Analysis, Reason and Goodness , and Reason and Belief. The second of these volumes has reached print already; the third is still to be completed. They were a most generous audience. The book is, in the main, a critical study of the analytic philosophy of the last forty years. During that period philosophy has changed with unexampled speed. Indeed the change has been so rapid that even devoted readers of the philosophical journals have had difficulty in keeping up with it; any critic who selects some position for scrutiny is likely to be met with the comment that this position was abandoned months ago, and that he is doing battle with ghosts.

For a moral agent to choose that good which in the light of reflection approves itself as intrinsically greatest is to exercise the o "When a thinker follows a line of implication, the course of his thought is conditioned by the necessity in his subject matter, but far from being humiliated when he realizes this, he finds in it a ground of pride.
For a moral agent to choose that good which in the light of reflection approves itself as intrinsically greatest is to exercise the only freedom worth having. In such cases the line of determination runs through the agent's own intelligence. To think at its best is to find oneself carried down the current of necessity.
To choose most responsibly is to see alternative goods with full clearness and to find the greatest of them tipping the beam. This, in a way, is to be determined. But there is nothing mechanical about it. For it is what the rational man means by freedom.

But that advance is not simply a matter of blind trial and error. Its direction is set by its end, which works as an immanent ideal within the process of thought.
