Description

The Dictionary of Philosophy.
editor: Runes, Dagobert D.
presumed 1942 (undated)
Hardcover presumed First Edition
Philosophical Library Publisher (this is NOT a ex-library book)
343 pages, Measures 9x6 inches Weighs 1 lb 3 oz

Condition: Antique Good.
Solid copy tight binding. Clean pages. Spine is discolored slightly from dust/age. Covers are slightly discolored (shelf wear/gentle use/age)

PREFACE:

The aim of this dictionary is to provide teachers, students and laymen
interested in philosophy with clear, concise, and correct definitions and
descriptions of the philosophical terms, throughout the range of philo-
sophic thought. In the volume are represented all the branches as well as
schools of ancient, medieval, and modern philosophy. In any such con-
spectus, it is increasingly recognized that the Oriental philosophies must
be accorded ample space beside those of the western world.
The great field that must be compressed within the limits of a small
volume makes omissions inevitable. If any topics, or phases of a subject,
deserve space not here accorded them, it may be possible in future editions
to allow them 'room; I take this occasion to invite suggestions and criticism,
to that end.
Clarity and correctness would be more easily secured if there were
concord among philosophers. Scarcely any two thinkers would define phi-
losophy alike; nor are they likely to agree as to the significance of its basic
concepts. The value of a one -volume dictionary, nonetheless, makes the
effort worthwhile.
"Dictionaries are like watches," Samuel Johnson said; "the best can-
not be expected to go quite true, but the worst is better than none.„
I trust that the present volume will serve as reliably as the chrono-
meter of today, in the time -pattern of the philosophic world.
I owe a debt of profound appreciation to every one of the many
collaborators that have so generously contributed to the Dictionary. Espe-
cially do I wish to acknowledge my gratitude to Professors William Marias
Malisoff and Ledger Wood. Needless to say, the final, responsibility, as
to the general plan of the volume, together with the burden of any short-
comings, rests solely upon the editor.
