Overview

The Biographical Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Philosophers provides detailed accounts of the careers, works, thought and critical reception of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century.
International in scope, with over 1000 entries, the Dictionary is alphabetically arranged, and features the lives and work of major figures alongside lesser-known but influential thinkers.
The articles are identically structured, making it easy to compare and contrast information, with a critical exposition of intellectual development and impact for each entry. The main body of each entry is preceded by a biographical section providing details of nationality, higher education, main appointments, philosophical style and areas of scholarly interest. A bibliographical section covers the philosopher's major writings and also secondary and critical literature.
