Format: Hardcover
This is the highest achievement of 20th century philosophy: Over 4,200 pages, over 1500 contributors. Originally published in 8 volumes in 1967, it was later issued in a 1972 reprint edition, complete but in a reduced format. The 8 volumes of the original were reduced to 4 books (2 vols in each), slightly smaller format, smaller print, on thinner but durable paper.
CAUTION: Take care in ordering. Sellers sometimes offer one or two volumes of the multi-volume set.

this is one of the major works of philosophy in the twentieth century and it is extremely readable and remarkably complete. Paul Edwards was a very astute editor and a terrific and clear writer.

Format: Hardcover
I became aware of the Encyclopedia of Philosophy when I was an undergraduate philosophy major in the late 1960s. At that time this work, edited by Paul Edwards, was quite new and something I couldn't afford. I finally was able to procure my own copy in the 1970s when I was a university professor. By then the original eight-volume set had been reissued as a four-volume set. The material was the same, but the print was smaller and the pages were thinner. I have retained my copy for nearly forty years. While the most recent developments on the philosophical scene are not part of these volumes, most of the entries are as useful today as they were when this work first came out. I made use of this work throughout my teaching career, and although I am now retired I still have ample reason to use it. This is a reference work every philosopher should have on the bookshelf.

Originally published in 8 volumes in 1967, this is the highest achievement of 20th century philosophy: Over 4,200 pages, over 1500 contributors. It was later issued in a 1972 reprint edition, complete but in a reduced format. The 8 volumes of the original were reduced to 4 books (2 vols in each), slightly smaller format, smaller print, on thinner but durable paper, complete and unabridged. (Note: I received the '67 edition as a gift; today I woul probably buy the 8 in 4.)
CAUTION: Take care in ordering. Sellers sometimes offer one or two volumes of the multi-volume set.
