'Dr. Lacey's very useful book manages to present the most awesomely complex concepts of philosophy with wonderful lucidity.' - Times Education Supplement
'The text is clear, has helpful cross-references, and lists the names for major works that are relevant to the entries. The book, in short, is a good one.' - Library Journal
'It was admirable in its first edition in 1976; improved when the second edition appeared in 1986; and has now come out in an even bigger and better third edition. It truly cannot be faulted as a handy reference for teachers and students alike.' - Heythrop Journal
From the Back Cover
Providing an illuminating and informed introduction to central philosophical issues, concepts and perspectives in the core fields of metaphysics, epistemology and philosophical logic, the Dictionary takes the most common terms and notions and clarifies what they mean to the philosopher and what sort of problems the philosopher finds associated with them. Thoroughly revised and updated, the bibliographies supply core reading lists, and each entry uses extensive cross referencing to related themes and concepts to provide a greater sense of access, control and comprehension.
