Jeremy, I believe so. I think the author starts with analytic dilemma since Quine of wanting to take metaphysics seriously, but not having anything like a method. I take it the author starts by looking at biology (I'm not certain what exactly this means) and argues that things like teleology and natural kinds and other sorts of scholastic ideas and principles are justified, ultimately arguing that the scholastics had a better understanding of and methodology concerning metaphysics than we do. I've gathered this from a couple reviews on Google. The description I gave could be incorrect.
