Description
These volumes survey individuals who contributed to British philosophical culture from 1900 to the 1960s. Included are more than 500 writers, teachers and amateur and professional philosophers, as well as thinkers in other disciplines who influenced the way we think. Acknowledging the challenges of defining the very term 'British', the editors have taken an inclusive approach to avoid errors of omission. Those who have been British subjects at least part of their lives, or who spent a lot of their life in the UK, those who were educated in Britain but then lived elsewhere -- all are included on merit. The volumes feature detailed biographical and bibliographical information on the entrant, as well as analysis of their doctrines, work, ideas, importance and influence. The dictionary includes thorough indexing and cross-referencing for ease of use.
