This second edition of the Encyclopedia builds on the foundations of the first, which is cited in Books for College Libraries, 3rd ed., Public Library Catalog, and Guide to Reference Books. For the new edition, chief editor Borchert (philosophy, Ohio U.) and his collaborators have chosen entries from the first edition and its Supplement "that were so well done that they merited retention" and have made bibliographical updates and significant addenda. To this core they have added 450 entries on new topics and 300 new entries on topics originally treated in the first edition. The philosophical inclusiveness of the first volume, already quite broad, has been modified and expanded in terms of representation of analytic and continental traditions and in cultural diversity, with inclusion of topics related to Buddhist, Chinese, Islamic, and Indian philosophy. From Italian existentialist Nicola Abbagnano to Spanish Christian ontologist Xavier Zubiri, the entries discuss the thought systems of important individual philosophers from around the world, as well as important topics, ranging from aesthetic experience to Zoroastrianism. The entries tend to be longer and more comprehensive than in similar works and include guides to related entries. Appearing in the final volume is an appendix of additional articles; a thematic outline of the contents based organized by historical periods and subfields of philosophy; a number of articles on philosophy bibliographies, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and journals; and, of course, an index for the entire set.
