Lacey and Michael Proudfoot.

The online version is regularly updated with new articles and revisions to existing articles. It has 1,300 contributors providing over 2,000 scholarly articles.

First published in 1976, the Dictionary of Philosophy has established itself as the best available text of its kind, explaining often unfamiliar, complicated and diverse terminology. Thoroughly revised and expanded, this fourth edition provides authoritative and rigorous definitions of a broad range of philosophical concepts.

Concentrating on the Western philosophical tradition, The Routledge Dictionary of Philosophy offers an illuminating and informed introduction to the central issues, ideas and perspectives in core fields such as metaphysics, epistemology, and logic. It includes concise biographical entries for more than one hundred major philosophers, from Plato and Aristotle through to contemporary figures such as Dummett, McDowell, Parfit and Singer.

All major entries are followed by helpful suggestions for further reading, including web links, and contain extensive cross-referencing to aid access and comprehension. This edition also features a brand new guide to the most useful philosophy sites on the internet. The Routledge Dictionary of Philosophy is an invaluable and up-to-date resource for all students of philosophy.

This product is a must have resource for anyone who is serious about the study of Philosophy. In many upper level/division course work, you will need this resource as part of your arsenal in order to clarify certain points that may have been missed in your lecture notes. It will also serve as a fine-tuning mechanism for your serious essay style submissions and lastly, the bibliography assistance is tremendous and highly credible.

I am sure it will provide you with more than enough information to assist you in achieve the highest grade possible if used in conjunction with your course curriculum.
Reference dictionaries should be clear, precise and complete. Concise dictionaries should be clear, precise, complete, and concise. Dictionaries of philosophy are thus challenging works for the editors, and even more so for the editors of concise versions. There are so many philosophers and so many philosophical terms and thoughts, all with competitors and rivals that it is difficult enough to decide what to leave out and how much balance is required to give a place every competing claim. It is also important to be up-to-date because new theories may have emerged to clarify or supplant older ones. In this regard, The Routledge Dictionary of Philosophy is the most current concise dictionary of philosophy (fourthe edition published 2010). However, It has fewer entries than its rivals, (The Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy; A Dictionary of Philosophy, Ed. Anthony Flew; and Penguin's Dictionary of Philosophy). In terms of substance and clarity I would rate the Penguin dictionary above the rest, but that is a 2005 edition and is in need of updating. Oxford is next best and is more current (2008). The advantage Routledge has over the others is that it has a short bibliography after each entry. The lists are relevant and useful. I conclude with a sample comparison, as an example, not in support or criticism of this edition. Routledge begins its definition of "Holism" with: "Any theory which approaches its subject matter as a whole rather than bit by bit." Penguin: "1. the view that an account of all the parts of a whole and of their interrelations is inadequate as an account of the whole....2. the view that an account or an interpretation of a part is impossible or at least inadequate without rerefence to the whole to which it belongs."
