About this title Synopsis: Since , the Encyclopedia of Philosophy, described by Booklist as the best and most comprehensive English-language reference source for philosophy, has been the cornerstone of the philosophy reference shelf.

Lauded for its clear and accessible presentation of wide-ranging philosophical subjects, the Encyclopedia has earned its place as a first-stop resource for general readers, students and educators. A Supplement to the first edition was released to critical acclaim in A new and updated edition of this multivolume set -- the first comprehensive new edition in almost 40 years -- has been compiled under the close guidance of a member board of scholars headed by Donald Borchert Ohio University.

Containing material from hundreds of highly distinguished contributors representing the worlds top universities and institutions, the second edition has a truly global perspective. It contains more than 2, entries -- including more than new articles. Among the many topics covered are African, Islamic, Jewish, Russian, Chinese, and Buddhist philosophies; bioethics and biomedical ethics; art and aesthetics; epistemology; metaphysics; peace and war; social and political philosophy; the Holocaust; feminist thought; and much more.

Additionally, the second edition also features 1, biographical entries on major figures in philosophical thought throughout history. Though it has aged gracefully, the passing years nevertheless called for updated bibliographies, revisions, and new articles, culminating in the one-volume Supplement. Now, in the face of significant competition since the late s, comes the second edition, which integrates most of the and material with hundreds of new articles, addenda to earlier articles, and updated bibliographies.

Section editors were given the task of reviewing the earlier entries and deciding which could be retained, with perhaps only bibliographical updates, and which required addenda or completely new material. The new edition and Supplement alike have been the occasion for many articles on philosophers, new subfields of philosophy, and other topics not appearing at all in the first edition.

The high proportion of earlier articles and addenda retained is testament to the quality of those entries and to the philosophical enterprise that builds upon the monuments of its past. To prevent confusion, each , , and entry and bibliographical update is dated. This practice is repeated in the list of contributors and their articles, revealing a number of contributors to both the and editions. The more than 2, entries include, according to the publisher, some 1, biographical entries and "more than new articles.

The 10 separately authored overviews under Chinese philosophy Buddhism, Confucianism, etc. The combined articles on the history and varieties of logic are a small book, concluding with a page glossary of logical terms. Lengthy articles such as Computability theory, Infinity in mathematics and logic, and Information theory, laden with logical and mathematical symbols, will perhaps be beyond the grasp of the average undergraduate philosophy major; such articles are by far the exception, and most will be comprehensible to the informed general reader.

Volume 10 opens with 13 articles that missed the deadlines for being included in volumes 1 through 9. These are followed by a thematic outline of contents; extensive bibliographies, in many languages, of philosophy dictionaries and encyclopedias, journals, and bibliographies published since ; and a page index. The competition is significant. Its online counterpart, available through subscription, Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy Online, has added more than new articles to the print version and will continue to add more.

It lags behind the other products mentioned only in number of articles; original articles will eventually replace a number of temporary or "proto articles.

Outstanding single-volume philosophy encyclopedias from Cambridge, Oxford, and Routledge published since the late s are low-cost print alternatives. Every encyclopedia mentioned privileges the Western philosophical tradition, with greater or lesser nods to non-Western traditions.

Encyclopedia of Philosophy, second edition, is highly recommended for academic and public libraries and will be indispensable to most. Kerferd, respectively. All rights reserved "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
