5.0 out of 5 stars A compantion to epistemology by Jonathan Dancy, January 16, 2007
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Companion to Epistemology (Blackwell Companions to Philosophy) (Paperback)
If there were a higher rating than 5 stars this book deserves it. The key to any philosopher's system is his vocabulary. Dancy not only clearly explains the meaning of many philosophers key ideas as they have developed throughout history but compares these ideas to related ones of other philosophers. A great way to learn the key thoughts of the past and present and bring the novice up to date. Cross reference are excellent for futher development as is the bibliography at the end of the articles. This book is a self-help course in philosophy in itself in the area of epistemology. Looking forward to additional volumes on other areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough and indispensible., May 10, 2000
This review is from: A Companion to Epistemology (Blackwell Companions to Philosophy) (Paperback)
With 250 entries from A to Z written by some of the world's leading philosophers, this encyclopedic Companion from Blackwell is an indispensible aid to students of philosophy in or out of the classroom. If you plan to do any reading in epistemology, an investment in this volume will be handsomely repaid.
It's hard to comment on specifics since the entries themselves are so widely varied, so let me just recommend a companion volume: Robert Audi's _Epistemology: A Contemporary Introduction_. (And _The Oxford Companion to Philosophy_, edited by Ted Honderich, is another keeper.)
The Blackwell "Companion" series is very good in general. See also _A Companion to Metaphysics_, which is highly recommended too.
