    Description
    Information
    Here are the concepts that shaped civilisation . . . the minds that made history . . . the thinkers, the thoughts, and the theories you need to know to understand the world we live in.

    Now you can get to the bottom of the big bang theory; find out where Freud's ideas came from, and where Einstein's may ultimately take us; demystify surrealism and structuralism, dialectic and deconstruction, communism and capitalism. With hundreds of entries, drawn from a wide range of fields - including religion, philosophy, psychology, economics, politics, history, art, literature, and science, this book enables you to turn immediately to the term in question for a comprehensive description of its history, meaning and context.

    Includes:
    - hundreds of entries, alphabetically arranged, with key words and concepts highlighted and cross-referenced
    - special emphasis on multi-cultural influences and the long-neglected impact of women on the history of ideas
    - concise bibliography of further reading and resources
    - comprehensive index giving easy access to all key terms and names.
