Just scored a 1972 reprint edition in pristine mint condition at a used book store for a mere $12.00. This set is more dangerous than a bag of Frito-Lays! You can't stop at just one entry. The depth and clarity are brilliant. To achieve these qualities together is a miracle. The contributors are top notch. Bertrand Russell, Northrop Frye(!), Martin Gardener, Paul Feyerabend to name but a few! Lots of contributors from the major Catholic orders, such as the Society of Jesus, which guarantees the depth with warmth. All in, this is the one you want! (written by the Oracle of Ottawa.)

Tons of articles on various philosophers, schools of thought, history, and philosophical subjects. Before reading the works of a particular philosopher or school, I highly recommend a person read the article concerning the subject/person in this book first. Read full review
