Concise Routledge encyclopedia of philosophyUser Review - Book Verdict
This work consists of more than 2000 abbreviated entries culled from the ten-volume Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy (LJ 9/15/98). It has the same number of entries as the ten-volume set, whose lengthy essays each begin with a brief description of the subject; it is these descriptions that make up the content of the Concise Encyclopedia. The layout generally follows other one-volume Routledge works, e.g., the Biographical Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Philosophers (LJ 9/1/96). Each entry is signed and includes one or two suggestions for further reading on the topic. An alphabetical list of entries and their contributors appears at the beginning of the book, and there is a comprehensive subject index. Reflecting the entire set, the choice of entries has been carefully made, and topics are not limited either to history or to Western philosophy. Libraries owning the set probably don't need this, though it would not be costly to add for ready-reference purposes. It should, however, find a welcome spot on the reference shelves of libraries not owning the set, given the exceptionally reasonable price and the care that has gone into the production.DTerry Skeats, Bishop Univ.
