The Dictionary of World Philosophy covers the diverse and challenging terminology, concepts, schools and traditions of the vast field of world philosophy. Providing an extremely comprehensive resource and an essential point of reference in a complex and expanding field of study the Dictionary covers all major subfields of the discipline.
Key features:
* Cross-references are used to highlight interconnections and the cross-cultural diffusion and adaptation of terms which has taken place over time
* The user is led from specific terms to master entries which provide valuable historical and cultural context
* Each master entry is followed by at least two suggestions for further reading on the subject, creating a substantial bibliography of world philosophy
* References extend beyond philosophy to related areas such as cognitive science, computer science, language and physics
Subdisciplines covered include:* aesthetics * ethics * sociopolitical philosophy * the philosophy of law * epistemology * logic * the philosophy of science * the philosophy of mind * the philosophy of culture and history * metaphysics * the philosophy of religion
Entries are drawn from West Africa, Arabic, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Jewish, Korean, Latin American, Maori and Native American philosophy including the important and so far largely neglected instance of Pre-Hispanic thought: Nahua philosophy.
