On its first appearance in 1960, the Concise Encyclopedia of Western Philosophy established itself as a classic; this third edition builds on its original strengths but brings it completely up to date. The Concise Encyclopedia offers a lively, readable, comprehensive and authoritative treatment of Western philosophy as a whole, incorporating scintillating articles by many leading philosophical authors. It serves not only as a convenient reference work, but also as an engaging introduction to philosophy.
'Jonathan Rée has gathered some fine specimens from the rich continental tradition in philosophy ... the breadth of new entries show a welcome recognition of the interdisciplinary character of philosophy ... impressive gallery of contributors.' - The Weekend Australian
