Product Description

Philosophical constructs affect many spheres of human existence, be it religion, history, or logic, to name but three. The Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2nd edition, brings every aspect of the philosophical realm - ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary - into the 21st century. Completely revising the seminal first edition from 1967 (as well as the 1997 supplement volume), the contributors have furnished the most current scholarship to inform this standard reference for philosophical research.
Clarity and perspicuity are hallmarks of the 2000 signed entries included in this aggregation of contemplation concerning the millennia of rational inquiry into the nature of truth, being and knowledge. The History of Logic itself covers more than 40 articles. Extensive cross-referencing, a profusion of bibliographical material and a large thematic outline among other features make this work a practical addition to a comprehensive research library. The Encyclopedia of Philosophy also brings new focus to non-Western philosophy, incorporating African, Asian, Latin American and Middle Eastern thought into its pages. Auspicious, far-ranging and replete with sources for deeper study, this new edition should bear the standard of philosophical scholarship and research well into the 21st Century.
Features include: The most extensive and in-depth treatment of philosophy, improving on the highly-regarded Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy by being informed by the paradigm shift in many spheres of thought stemming from events in the first half-decade of the 21st century; Over 400 of the almost 1200 original articles (from the earlier edition and supplement) are deepened with bibliographies, along with 90 updated articles and 150 addendum; Blind entries, cross-references, and extensive individual-entry bibliographies; 300 newly authored treatments of topics covered in 1st edition or supplement and 450 entries on new topics; Volume 10 includes substantive lists of philosophic dictionaries and encyclopedias, relevant journals and bibliographic monographs, a comprehensive index as well as the thematic outline.
