Available in paperback for the first time, this wide-ranging dictionary covers over 400 figures, from central figures such as Bacon and Hobbes to non-traditional and less well-known figures such as John Liburne and Thomas Tyron. Where earlier works have construed philosophy narrowly, this dictionary covers the whole discipline, and the many aspects of religion, politics, mathematics and science that are of philosophical significance. Entries include biographies, assessments and bibliographies for each subject. The text places the figure in the social as well as intellectual context of the day and critically assesses their central claims and doctrines as well as their overall place in the history of philosophy. Bibliographies contain the author's own works together with a selection of secondary literature. A system of cross-references makes it easy for the reader to pursue connections and influences.
