The Oxford Companion to Philosophy, Hardback Book



Oxford University Press presents a major new edition of the definitive philosophical reference work for readers at all levels.

For ten years the original volume has served as a stimulating introduction for general readers and as an indispensable guide for students; its breadth and depth of coverage have ensured that it is also read with pleasure and interest by those working at a higher level in philosophy and related disciplines.

A distinguished internationalassembly of 249 philosophers contributed almost 2,000 entries, and many of these have now been considerably revised and updated; to these are added over 300 brand-new pieces on a fascinating range of current topics.

This new edition offers enlightening and enjoyable discussions of all aspects ofphilosophy, and of the lives and work of the great philosophers from antiquity to the present day.
