Book Description

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 is a freelance historian, journalist and philosopher. His books include Descartes, Philosophy and its Past, Proletarian Philosophers, Philosophical Tales, Heidegger, and I See a Voice.

J.O. Urmson was Emeritus Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford.


'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
