Reviews

"Gordon's dictionary is badly needed, since no substantial dictionaries have appeared since the early 1970s, and those earlier dictionaries are limited....The entries are informative yet concise, are written and signed by academic experts, provide brief lists of references and have extensive cross-references printed in uppercase.... This dictionary provides the thorough reference source.... It is highly recommended for all academic collections, especially for undergraduates and advanced students investigating the influence of existentialism on culture and thinking." --Choice

"Recommended for academic and large public libraries." --Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"This will be a solid addition to the philosophy section of any reference collection, and a handsome complement to general and subject-specific encyclopedias." --American Reference Books Annual

"The notion of producing a volume of this sort is rather ingenious....The outcome is an interesting pastiche that can be useful both to such scholars and to persons seeking information to whom the field of existentialism has hitheto been terra incognita....[H]aim Gordon, who is to be congratulated for this massive undertaking." --Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology
