"Ever since its first appearance in 1960, this Concise Encyclopedia has been recognised as a classic, providing not only a guide to philosophy at its best, but some remarkable samples of it too. This new edition builds on the strengths of the first and brings it completely up to date, with entries on newly emerging philosophers and on themes as diverse as aesthetics, 'African philosophy', gender, translation and philosophy of mind. The Concise Encyclopedia offers a lively, readable, comprehensive and authoritative treatment of Western philosophy as a whole, incorporating articles by many leading philosophical authors. It serves not only as a convenient reference work, but also as an engaging introduction to philosophy."--Jacket

I see a voice : deafness, language, and the senses--a philosophical history by Jonathan Rée( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Rée tells the astonishing story of the deaf, from the sixteenth century to the present. Rée explores the great debates about deafness and its "cure" between those who believed the deaf should be made to speak and those who advocated non-oral communication. He traces the botched attempts to make language visible through such exotic methods as picture-writing, manual spellings, and vocal photography. And he charts the tortuous progress and final recognition of sign systems as natural languages in their own right

The Kierkegaard reader by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology is the first attempt to present a rounded picture of 'Kierkegaard as a philosopher' in English. After an introduction explaining how Kierkegaard viewed the task of 'becoming a philosopher', there are generous extracts from the Concept of Irony and the great pseudonymous works: Either/Or, Fear and Trembling, Repetition, Philosophical Fragments, The Concept of Anxiety, Prefaces, Johannes Climacus and Concluding Unscientific Postscript. Kierkegaard's own attempts to summarise the significance of his writings are also included, so that readers have the opportunity to make up their own minds about the adequacy of his retrospective accounting."
Critique of dialectical reason by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

27 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critique of Dialectical Reason is the product of a later stage in Sartre's thinking, during which he no longer identified Marxism with the Soviet Union or French Communism but came closer to identifying as a Marxist. It puts forward a revision of Existentialism, and an interpretation of Marxism as a contemporary philosophy par excellence, one that can be criticized only from a reactionary pre-Marxist standpoint

Jacques Derrida by Philippe Collin( Visual )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacques Derrida, the French philosopher credited with launching the Deconstructionist movement, argues his theories in this program. Derrida begins with a frank discussion on the ethical problems of Deconstruction, especially in relation to human rights. He argues that Deconstruction is not a disillusion of the subject, it is first and foremost a historical or genealogical analysis of that subject and an attempt to focus on a universal translation of it. Derrida points out that Deconstruction is mainly an affirmation-- it goes further and changes the nature of the subject-- and is neither "reconstruction" nor "destruction."
