A very nice little volume that helped me through my undergrad philosophy major. I've since acquired larger, more exhaustive dictionaries of philosophy, but this is still a reliable quick reference. I'll tend to start here, then move on if necessary to, e.g., The Encyclopedia of Philosophy or Dictionary of the History of Ideas.

The new edition of Angeles' terrific reference book is, in most ways, superior to the first. Great for people new to philosophy, and a handy reference for old hands.
