The dictionary shows philosophers at their best (and their worst), at their most perverse and their most elegant. Organised by philosopher, and indexed by thought, concept and phrase, it enables readers to discover who said what, and what was said by whom. Over 300 philosophers are represented, from Aristotle to Zeno, including Einstein, Aquinas, Sartre and De Beauvoir, and the quotations range from short cryptic phrases to longer statements.
This " Dictionary of Philosophical Quotations will not change your life. It will change your mind.
"Everybody should have a copy." Auberon Waugh, The Sunday Telegraph
"The spread of philosophers is huge - more than 330 jostle in the book ... I cannot think of any figure who is missing from this roll-call ... this is not really a book of quotations as we know it but something far more mighty." Literary Review
"The most surprising philosophers do come across. One gets a fair impression of Derrida, and the quotations from Adorno present a whole philosophy in brief digestible form." Times Literary Supplement
