Overview

One Hundred Twentieth-Century Philosophers offers biographical information and critical analysis of the life, work and impact of some of the most significant figures in philosophy this century.
Taken from the acclaimed Biographical Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Philosophers, the 100 entries are alphabetically organised, from Adorno to Zhang Binglin, and cover individuals from both continental and analytic philosophy.
The entries have an identical four-part structure making it easy to compare and contrast information, comprising:

* biographical details
* a bibliography of major works
* a listing of relevant secondary and critical literature
* an appraisal of the philosopher's thoughts and achievements.
A separate glossary provides an introduction to the origins, development and main features of major philosophical schools and movements and offers select bibliographies to guide the reader to further research.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This volume culls 100 entries from a major reference work, the Biographical Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Philosophers (LJ 9/1/96), and presents them alphabetically in paperback format. Those selected range from Theodor Adorno to Zhang Binglin. Selection criteria are not given, though individuals appear to have been chosen because of their influence on 20th-century thought. A quick comparison of the bibliographies in the two books suggests that no new works have been added. For libraries that either cannot afford the Biographical Dictionary, priced at $150, or feel that its coverage is more extensive than required, this modestly priced paperback will serve well.Terry C.
