Encyclopedia of Philosophy

The Encyclopedia of Philosophy is one of the major English encyclopedias of philosophy.

The first edition of the encyclopedia was in eight volumes, edited by Paul Edwards, and published in 1967 by Macmillan; it was reprinted in four volumes in 1972.

A "Supplement" volume, edited by Donald M. Borchert, was added to the reprinted first edition in 1996, containing articles on developments in philosophy since 1967, covering new subjects and scholarship updates or new articles on those written about in the first edition.

A second edition, also edited by Borchert, was published in ten volumes in 2006 by Thomson Gale. Volumes 1–9 contain alphabetically ordered articles. Volume 10 consists of:

  • Appendix (pp. 1–48), containing updates and additions to the articles in the preceding volumes;
  • Thematic outline of content (pp. 49–66);
  • Bibliographies (pp. 67–177);
  • Index (pp. 179–671).

Its ISBNs are 0-02-865780-2 as a hardcover set, and 0-02-866072-2 as an e-book.
