This is an auction for THE OXFORD COMPANION TO PHILOSOPHY, edited by Ted Honderich.

"A first-rate book that belongs in every philosophy collection."
- Library Journal (US)

"Editor Honderich sees this book not only as a reference work, but as "something more amiable than that. It diverts. It suits a Sunday morning." The Oxford Companion to Philosophy is an authoritative, alphabetically arranged encyclopedia. Honderich has assembled a distinguished roster of 240 contributors, whose 1931 signed entries are directed toward general readers fascinated with philosophy as well as philosophy students and professional philosophers.
Among the lengthiest entries (2,000 words or more) are those on the great philosophers of the past (Aristotle, Descartes, Kant, etc.), on the dozen or so major branches of philosophy (epistemology, metaphysics, logic), and on the most prominent "national" philosophies (American, Indian, Japanese). Shorter biographies focus on others prominent in the field, including some 150 contemporary philosophers. Rounding out the book are hundreds of articles on philosophical terms and dozens on national philosophies of lesser impact on the Anglo-American tradition (Croatian, Spanish, Swedish). Short bibliographies follow most entries. The diversity of contributors has resulted in a wide variety of interesting, idiosyncratic articles. The Oxford Companion to Philosophy is highly recommended for academic, public, and high-school libraries."
