Dictionary of Philosophy and Religion : Eastern and Western Thought
by William L. Reese
A comprehensive and useful reference for understanding terms, concepts, writers, founders, and movements in philosophy and religion.
I have had an older edition the Dictionary of Philosophy and Religion on my shelf for many years. The book is usually the first place to go to answer questions like: When did Mohammed live? What are the main differences between the various Christian movements? What is Existentialism? What is Hinduism? What is Taoism? What did Kant say? What is Buddhism? What does modus ponens mean, ...
The book provides a great tool for understanding ideas and terms you discover in your investigations or for using as a starting point for further reading.
Have fun exploring!
