                    Philosophical Dictionary

This is the general Index of my Philosophical Dictionary. 
Clicking a letter starts the list of terms that start with that letter and that are presently in the Dictionary.

The Philosophical Dictionary is a hypertext of alphabetically arranged terms and ideas in English or Dutch that relate to philosophy. The entries state what I thought when I wrote them and are dated at the end. There are many links and many interrelations, and to understand all of it you must at least have read all of it. Also, to understand all of it may require some knowledge of philosophy and logic, such as can be acquired by reading some books listed in Literature

There is a little more background in the following sections:

Here are three files with keyterms in the Dictionary; with categories by which the terms are classified; and with all terms in the dictionary so far:

Also there now is a quotations-server in Javascript, with all of the code and all of the quotations in the source:

I wish you pleasant and instructive reading!

Please note that this Philosophical Dictionary gives my views and my stipulative definitions how I wish to use philosophical and other terms.

In case you want a more comprehensive view, by many specialists, try

NB: For the moment, the Philosophical Dictionary is almost ten years young, and contains over 600 entries, that also are not fully done. This is expected to be a large work, of years to come.

At present it is an ongoing project of some 18 MB, that will start to be more or less as I want it to be when it is twice as large, I expect.

Therefore, the reader may be sure that for the time being all entries into the Philosophical Dictionary will be soon revised or updated (for example: provided with new links). Also, all entries that have been made can be expected to be extended, sometimes by a lot of material.

So for the moment, one thing is certain: All the material in it for the time being is transient, changeable, and to be extended and corrected, if and when I have the health for it.


As of November 7 2012:

The formatting that had been upset over the past one and a half year (since May 2011) has now been rectified again. This means that the lemmas in the dictionary look better than they did the last year, as they have been reformatted to show all one size font. The html is still not  very good, being made by a WYSIWYG editor, but at least WYS now is - I hope - all in one size font.
