Product Description

Review

'… a beguiling editorial thoroughness, concision and clarity of presentation are the hallmarks of this distinguished volume … will prove its usefulness over the years to come.' Edward Neill, Times Education Supplement

' … wonderful cross-referencing which makes the volume so addictive as the reader pursues his or her own 'figure in the carpet'. Edward Neill, Times Education Supplement

'This is easily the best one-volume reference tool on philosophy that I have seen.' Graham Nerlich, Australasian Journal of Philosophy

'… the next reference work in philosophy that every library should own is The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy … highly recommended for all libraries.' Philosophy and Religion

'Robert Audi has undoubtedly produced the most comprehensive single-volume dictionary of philosophy - ever. It would make a fine addition to any philosophy student's library.' Rory Fox, The Heythop Journal

Format: Paperback
As an advanced level philosophy student i have found this dictionary not only to be all encompassing but also to explain with the simplicity required of writers in philosophy. The book covers an immense spectrum of philosophical perspectives and does not require a Ph.D to understand. All praise be to Robert Audi and the compilers.

Format: Paperback
This dictionary is a very valuable academic source. It has definitions of main philosophical terms from the different philosophers or schools and at the end each word it directs you to other words related. It can be tricky at the beginning, if you must, but it is very easy once you give it a chance. As stated before, it is a must if you are doing research or studying philosophy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this weighty tome to assist my adventures into the mysteries of philosophy but have been frustrated by the frequent cross-referencing of needed words. This is especially irritating when the cross reference is to a lengthy entry that requires protracted and careful reading to find the meaning being sought. As a dictionary I find it a disappointing. When more detail and background is needed the entries can be very helpful so as a one volume encyclopedia yes, but dictionary no.
