Over 60,000 new entries! "Covers a wide variety of topics, though the bulk of them consist of concise, focused definitions used by philosophy students. Blackburn writes in an interesting, easy-to-follow style, making liberal use of cross-references. Recommended for all libraries,"---Booklist. 480 pages, hardcover.
Comprehensive and authoritative, the Dictionary of Philosophy contains over 2,500 entries, including biographies of nearly 500 influential philosophers. The dictionary provides wide-ranging and lively coverage of not only Western philosophical traditions, but also themes from Chinese, Indian, Islamic, and Jewish philosophy. This clear and easy to use reference also contains in-depth analysis of philosophical terms and concepts, and a chronology of philosophical events stretching from 10,000 BC to the present day.
Simon Blackburn is Edna J. Koury Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina. He was a fellow and Tutor at Pembroke College, Oxford from 1969 to 1990. The author of Spreading the Word (1984) and Essays in Quasi-Realism, he edited the journal Mind from 1984 to 1990.
"Thanks to clever typography, this revision of the 1994 edition eliminates virtually nothing, adding hundreds of new entries in the same 400 pages with no loss of legibility.... This edition will double as a world-religion reference, but its original material is, reassuringly, little changed."--School Library Journalr
