A second edition of the most authoritative and accessible one-volume dictionary of philosophy available in English.


This new edition of a one-volume dictionary of philosophy features expansions in standing entries and the addition of some 400 new ones across the entire range of the subject (including selective coverage of a number of living philosophers, mostly thinkers in their mid- sixties or older). It covers not only Western and European philosophy, but also African, Arabic, Islamic, Japanese, Jewish, Korean, and Latin-American. In addition to major philosophers, entries include rapidly developing fields such as the philosophy of mind and applied ethics (bioethics, environmental, medical and professional). Audi is Charles J. Mach Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, U. of Nebraska at Lincoln. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
