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
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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Even after all these years, this is still the best affordable reference work in philosophy. There are two more extensive encyclopedias that have been published more recently, but they're so expensive that they are only purchased by schools and libraries. A supplement was published to this set which is also worth having inasmuch as it updates it for the past 30 years or so.

My gift recipient was so, so happy to receive this! He shipped them to Italy to avoid carrying them while travelling. Used books in good condition!
