Editorial Reviews

"This volume culls 100 entries from a major reference work, the "Biographical Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Philosophers . . . For libraries that either cannot afford the "Biographical Dictionary or feel its coverage is more extensive than required, this modestly priced paperback will serve well."
