Reviews

"[Angus'] project is to renew the question of ethical and technological action by inserting `the practical context "between" particular and universal.' To this end, he proposes a `phenomenological exploration of the particularity of contemporary technology,' one that will outline `a new configuration of particular and universal' and find `"the truth, . . . within its horizons . . . systematically explicated."' This is done `through articulation of Canadian experience,' moving `through love of one's own to the universal.'" - Canadian Philosophical Reviews
