Moseley's authoritative command of the subject is enhanced by an informal writing style that is free of unnecessary technical jargon.
While the book's alphabetical arrangement makes it a valuable reference work, its narrative structure flows so smoothly that it can be enjoyably read cover to cover. If you are new to philosophy, this is the place to begin; if you are already philosophically adept, you will appreciate the book as a convenient repository of philosophical knowledge.'
Professor James Fieser, University of Tennessee, USA
