Announcements DICTIONARY OF THE HISTORY OF IDEAS Charles Seribner's Sons announces the publication in June, 1973, of their long awaited Dictionary o/ the History of Ideas. The price of the four large volumes is $140.00. In 1974 a fifth volume ($35.00) will appear, containing an Index with detailed cross-references to all articles in the four volumes, and to all the ideas represented as they appear in several articles. Thus an alphabetical guide to the contents of the dictionary will make consultation easy and practical.

It cuts across many of the lines which separate the sciences, and it describes scientific ideas in their cultural contexts. It deals with the humanities in a similar way. This enterprise is obviously of special value for the history of philosophy. The following are the section headings in the Analytical Table of Contents: I The history of ideas about the external order of nature studied by the physical and biological sciences, ideas also present in common usage, imaginative literature , myths about nature, metaphysical speculation. II The history of ideas about human nature in anthropology, psychology, religion, and philosophy as well as in literature and common sense. III The history of ideas in literature and the arts in aesthetic theory and literary criticism. IV The history of ideas about or attitudes to history, historiography, and historical criticism.

VII The history of formal mathematical, logical, linguistic, and methodological ideas. ...
