9780091228507: The Concise Encyclopaedia of Western Philosophy and Philosophers

On its first appearance in 1960, J.O. Urmson's Concise encyclopedia of Western philosophy and philosophers established itself as a classic. Its contributors included many of the leading philosophers of the English-speaking world: Ryle, Hare, Strawson, Ayer, Dummett, Williams and many others. They wrote with an authority and individuality which made the Encyclopedia into a lively and engaging introduction to philosophy as well as a convenient reference work. For this edition, supervised by Jonathan Ree, the original articles have been revised and updated, and eighty articles by thirty one new authors have been added. The additions take account of recent developments in philosophy, of literary, historical and political issues in philosophy, and of developments in continental thought, including in Marxism, psychoanalysis, phenomenology, existentialism, structuralism, post-structuralism and deconstruction. There is a clear, integral cross-referencing system which allows the reader to identify points of overlap between philosophical traditions and their personalities at a glance.

Product Description:

This concise work features a large collection of essays on philosophers who have had a lasting impact on Western thought. The volume has been designed primarily as a reference text for undergraduate and postgraduate philosophy students, and non-specialist readers. The encyclopedia has been revised and updated to include 80 new articles. Some of the additions concern developments in philosophy over the past 30 years, while others take account of new ideas about old topics. Further articles deal with political or literary aspects of philosophy, psychoanalysis, Marxism and traditions in European continental philosophy.
