Outline ReviewIn this 10-volume set, we have a truly global encyclopedia of metaphysical thought--not just philosophy, but theology as well. Although it has noticeable British and American sensibilities, the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy is a multicultural affair with over 2,000 individual articles, including entries for Cheng Hao and Baal Shem Tov along with Ren Descartes and Immanuel Kant, and it discusses Mahayana Buddhism as ably as it discusses deconstruction theory. Admirable efforts have been made by the individual contributors (all 1,300-plus of them) to maintain such clarity of presentation as to provide a sophisticated yet accessible intellectual primer that requires only a willingness to learn. This is the philosophic equivalent of the Oxford English Dictionary, doubling as an indispensable reference and a marvelously indulgent splurge.
The most exciting, ambitious international philosophy project in many years, the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy [REP] brings philosophy reference into the 21st century.
General Editor Edward Craig, with the assistance of 30 specialist subject editors, has compiled over 2,000 entries--thematic, biographical and national--ranging from 500 to 15,000 words in length, written by over 1200 renowned authors from all over the world. REP offers in-depth coverage of vast scope. In addition to covering the core of most Anglo-American philosophy--the metaphysical, epistemological and logical questions, REP provides thorough, expert treatments of world philosophies, including the philosophies and major thinkers of India, Africa and Latin America, as well as Chinese, Arabic and Jewish philosophy. REP brings philosophy reference up to date with entries on new concepts, developing schools and systems and new thinking about older themes. Authoritative, detailed entries cover everything from Heraclitus to Chinese Marxism, from medieval philosophy to philosophies of science, gender, postmodernism, and much, much more.
The preeminient names in the field have contributed to this project: William Alston, Roderick Chisholm, Fred Dretske, Joel Feinberg, Sandra Harding, Larry Laudan, Martha Nussbaum, Richard Popkin, Richard Rorty, Alan Ryan, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Stephen Stich, Patrick Suppes and Bernard Williams, to name just a few.
The Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy is the unrivalled source of reference for teachers and students of philosophy. REP can be purchased in three different ways:
