Review of Richard H. Jones' Reductionism: analysis and the fullness of reality
The sweep of the book is to argue that reduction (if distinguished from inter-level connections) is not working well anywhere, and if not lower down, there is even less reason to suppose that it will work higher up. Is there anything super-physics, anything super-biological, anything super-psychological, anything super-sociological--and in the end, more generically, anything super-natural, super to the natural? Jones, a lawyer, assesses the strength of evidence on both sides. He has felt the power of encounter with a mysterious universe.
