dictionary of philosopy Reviews
This text was required reading during my freshman-year, Introduction To Philosophy course at SBCC. The book's author, Professor Peter Angeles, was my instructor. Many published professors will often assign there own texts simply because there is money to made. With Professor Angeles, that simply was not the case. This little gem of a book proved to be a great gift to its students. Concise, densely packed and easy to read, it provides cogent descriptions of major philosophical figures, periods and concepts and is a great all-around resource, not just for students of philosophy, but students of life. From time to time, to this day, I still pick this book and muse, about those times, those days, and how this text played such a large role in my desire to learn and become a better student. I have no idea whether or not this text is required reading anywhere in the world today. I hope that it is and it would be truly sad if it was not.Peter Angeles was a brilliant thinker, a great instructor, a talented author and all-around decent human being. I owe him a lot and feel lucky to have had the opportunity to be in his presence and sit in on his many lectures. He has been deceased now for nearly a decade yet his presence is felt everywhere.
A good concise look at the field of Philosophy and its various branches
