Item description for The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy by Robert Audi...

Provides biographical entries for eastern and western philosophers, and covers philosophical terms and topics.

Publishers Description
Widely acclaimed as the most authoritative and accessible one-volume dictionary available in English (and now with translations into Chinese, Korean, Russian, Italian, and Spanish underway) this second edition offers an even richer, more comprehensive, and more up-to-date survey of ideas and thinkers written by an international team of 436 contributors. Includes the most comprehensive entries on major philosophers, 400 new entries including over 50 on preeminent contemporary philosophers, extensive coverage of rapidly developing fields such as the philosophy of mind and applied ethics, more entries on non-Western philosophy than any comparable volume, and increased coverage of Continental philosophy.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy?

Wonderful resource for students and laypersons  May 16, 2008
This is easily the most used book in my collection. I mostly use it as a reference when reading philosophical texts, but I also enjoy it on its own. I am extremely curious, and the helpful cross references allow me to follow my thoughts wherever they take me. The entries on logic can be quite opaque for those not already trained in symbolic logic, but the rest are accessible to the educated layperson. Entries on specific philosophers are well organized and masterfully summarize biography and theory. If you are trying to immerse yourself in philosophy or contemporary social theory, this book will be of immense help.
Good for Analytic, but Oxford Companion is Better  Apr 19, 2008
I have used both the Oxford Companion to Philosophy and this dictionary. I prefer the Oxford Companion because it contains more definitions and clearer expositions. But both books neglect recent Continental types of philosophy; yet, the Oxford fares much better in this regard than the Cambridge.
Clear, concise and compelling  Oct 10, 2007
All the reviews have already said everything I would, so I am adding my rating. This title is concise, comprehensive on philosophy and each entry is straight to the point. Sometimes I want a bit more information, but then this is not an encyclopaedia or a primary text. For what it is: a philosophy dictionary, it cannot be beat.
Sort of Helpful  Jun 23, 2007
The organization of this book sucks. It's alphabetical, but most of the contents for vocab terms say "See..." and give no page reference or anything. The book is really long, probably longer than the Bible, but it does have some helpful hints. It is, however, written just like my lectures, which is a bad thing. It could be clearer and less annoying. My class said this book was "not required" and now I know why.
Philio-Reference for a non-philosopher  Mar 19, 2007
I lack training in philosophy but often read nonfiction criticism that requires a bit of philosophical background. This book provides that background without sending my tired eyes to the much longer entries in the eight volume _Encyclopedia of Philosophy_. From the Dictionary's depth and breadth of concise entries, with references to related and equally concise entires, I can usually learn enough to answer my immediate question. The entries also point me to where I should dig if I want deeper background. This Dictionary now permanently resides beside my reading chair.
