"Its entries manage to avoid the obscurities of an exaggerated brevity without stretching themselves out as if seeking to embody whole miniature essays. In short it presents itself as a model of clarity and clarification." Alan Montefiore, Balliol College, Oxford

"The style is fresh and engaging, and it gives a broad and accurate picture of the Western philosophical tradition. It is a pleasure to browse in even if one is not looking for an answer to a particular question." David Pears

"The book makes for interesting browsing, and there is a lot of information to be found in it." Analytic Teaching

"People studying philosophy- at higher levels of school and college and lower levels of university- will find the coverage here highly satisfying. Value for money of the best kind." Reference Reviews
