The Penguin Dictionary of Philosophy : Book
I don`t suppose there is much to be said about a dictionary of terms, not in a review-sense - other than relaying the essential information as to whether it is good at what it does, and is worth the pennies or not. Show-offs will be pleased to learn that the words and terms this book contains are not only invaluable to the avid scholar, but also make for priceless show-off value ? open a page at random and recite the meaning of the longest word - never fails to impress. On a more serious note; speaking as a keen philosopher, The Penguin Dictionary of Philosophy never ceases to enthral me ? the aforementioned tactic of opening a page at random and reading a few definitions can open up whole new avenues of philosophical thought? but of course, this is philosophy! And philosophy is a subject that will be all the better appreciated and enjoyed with this essential tool by your side.
From `abduction` to `zeugma`, a priceless investment for the newbie and blossoming philosopher alike.
