really useful for beginners, 5 Feb. 2006
i am an absolute beginner to philosophy and this book has been such a help!
all the definitions are precise enough to explain the essence of every theory, but still concise enough not to derail you from what you're actually reading.
i mean if you want to learn a lot about specific theories just from the dictionary, then this isnt it. it's just right to get you through other philosophy-readings, just like a dictionary. its not an encyclopaedia.
