The Bloomsbury Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers is a landmark work. Covering one of the most innovative centuries for philosophical investigation, it features more than 650 entries on the eighteenth-century philosophers, theologians, jurists, physicians, scholars, writers, literary critics and historians whose work has had lasting philosophical significance. Alongside well-known German philosophers of that era-Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Immanuel Kant, and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel-the Dictionary provides rare insights into the lives and minds of lesser-known individuals who influenced the shape of philosophy. Each entry discusses a particular philosopher's life, contributions to the world of thought, and later influences, focusing not only on their most important published writings, but on relevant minor works as well. Bibliographical references to primary and secondary source material are included at the end of entries to encourage further reading, while extensive cross-referencing allows comparisons to be easily made between different thinkers' ideas and practices. For anyone looking to understand more about the century when enlightenment thinking arrived in Germany and established conceits were challenged, The Bloomsbury Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers is a valuable, unparalleled resource.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Bloomsbury Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers is an outstanding reference work that provides reliable and detailed information about German thinkers both great and small throughout the 18th Century. The first rate team of scholars who have contributed their expertise makes the Dictionary useful both for its lengthy articles on major philosophers and for the information it provides on figures of whom one has no prior knowledge. -- Eric Watkins, Professor of Philosophy, University of California, San Diego, USA
The Bloomsbury Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers is an invaluable resource for scholars working on Leibniz, Kant, and everything in between. The many detailed entries, written by leading scholars in the field, provide a fascinating glimpse into the incredibly rich and vibrant intellectual culture of Enlightenment Germany. Now that it is newly available in this (expanded) paperback edition, the Dictionary should, and undoubtedly will, find a place on the desk of every serious scholar and student of this period. -- Corey W. Dyck, Associate Professor and Graham and Gale Wright Distinguished Scholar, University of Western Ontario, Canada
