Publisher Comments:

THE THINKERS, THE THOUGHTS, AND THE THEORIES YOU NEED TO KNOW TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.

With A World of Ideas, you can get to the bottom of the big bang theory; find out where Freud's ideas were coming from, and where Einstein's might take us; demystify surrealism and structuralism, communism and capitalism. Prepared with the assistance of an academic board of leading scholars, this invaluable reference includes

- Hundreds of entries, alphabetically arranged, with key words and concepts highlighted and cross-referenced--more than two thousand in all

- A special emphasis on multicultural influences and contemporary thought

- A comprehensive index giving easy access to all essential terms and names

A World of Ideas is an indispensable resource for the curious reader.

Synopsis:

Whether it's the big bang theory, Freud's interpretation of dreams, or communism vs. capitalism, this dictionary explains it all in easy-to-understand terms.
