A UNIQUE WORK OF REFERENCE AND A COMPANION TO ALL FIELDS OF MODERN THOUGHT
How often are attempts to broaden your knowledge of modern thought frustrated by terms and allusions that you do not understand? In an age of specialization no one can honestly claim to know the whole vocabulary of modern thought: yet most people would like to understand more. 'The Fontana Dictionary of Modern Thought' remains uniquely capable of helping them to do this. It has been updated to include more than a thousand new entries, while the existing entries have been extensively revised and in many cases rewritten.
More discursive than an ordinary dictionary, more compact than an encyclopaedia, more selective than either, it covers the whole range of modern thought from the latest developments in astrophysics to recent trends in the arts. For this new edition some areas, such as anthropology, world history, critical theory, economics, philosophy, music, medicine and the psychological disciplines, have been substantially enlarged.
'The Fontana Dictionary of Modern Thought' is indispensable as a reference book, irresistible for browsing through – practically an education in itself.
