What's in a Name?
Reflections on Language, Magic, and Religion

G. A. Wells

"Using his probing intelligence to criticize the views of pundits from Locke to Chomsky, from Ayer to religious apologists, G. A. Wells has produced a lively essay on the persistent mistakes that have been made in understanding the relations among things, words, and ideas. The chapter entitled 'Language and the Bible' is a gem. It should delight skeptics even as it challenges believers. What's in a Name? shows, as if it still needed to be shown, that Wells is one of the foremost religious critics of our time."
