The Retreat to Commitment, by William Warren Bartley III

the nature and limits of criticism

Bartley writes: "This book explores the nature and limits of criticism. Thereby it explores the nature and limits of rationality. It contains a generalization of Sir Karl Popper's approach to philosophy. By applying this generalization, it is able to solve a philosophical problem that has, since antiquity, been thought to be insoluble -- that of the examination and justification of basic presuppositions. As an immediate result, the traditional arguments for both skepicism and fideism, and for most forms of relativism, are vanquished."
