Inhaltsangabe: Encyclopedia of Philosophy Blue Supplement (Macmillan Reference USA)
From Booklist: The Encyclopedia of Philosophy, originally published in 1967 under the editorship of Paul Edwards, remains to this day the best and most comprehensive English-language reference source for philosophy. But as the editor of this new single-volume supplement points out, "Much has happened in the discipline of philosophy since 1967." Hence, there is a need for some updating.
The supplement is not intended to be used on its own. Rather, it "presupposes and builds on the work embodied in the Encyclopedia" and is selective of topics chosen for inclusion. Overview articles on areas within the discipline of philosophy (e.g., Aesthetics, Metaphysics) update the user on developments since the publication of the encyclopedia. While the encyclopedia contains a lengthy survey of the history of aesthetics, the entry in the supplement discusses more recent approaches to aesthetic theory (e.g., postmodernist, feminist) not covered in the original work. Updates are provided for individual philosophers as well, from Aristotle to Wittgenstein. The supplement also includes new topics such as African philosophy, biomedical ethics, evidentialism, women in the history of philosophy, and the varied dimensions of feminist philosophy. Individual thinkers whose influence has grown in the past three decades have been given separate entries. Nearly one-half of the personal entries in the supplement are new and include such philosophers as Saul Kripke, John Rawls, and Georg Henrik von Wright.
Articles in the supplement are signed by the scholars who authored them and usually include a supplemental bibliography. The bibliographies for entries that are updates cite scholarship produced in the past 30 years. The supplement includes a comprehensive index to both itself and the encyclopedia, and cross-referencing in the supplement is made to entries in both works.
Libraries that own the encyclopedia must acquire the supplement. Libraries that do not own the encyclopedia might want to mark the occasion of the publication of the supplement by purchasing both works.
