A distinguished international assembly of 249 philosophers contributed almost 2,000 entries, and many of these have now been considerably revised and updated in this major new edition; to these are added over 300 brand-new pieces on a fascinating range of current topics such as animal consciousness, cloning, corporate responsibility, the family, globalization, terrorism. Contributors include Isaiah Berlin, Sissela Bok, Ronald Dworkin, John Searle, Michael Walzer, and W. V. Quine. Articles treat great thinkers, key concepts, major doctrines, schools of though, and contentious public issues. In addition, the book offers short explanations of philosophical terms, puzzles, and curiosities.
