Page numbers given in bold type indicate entire chapters or sections dedicated to the heading or subheading under which these page numbers appear.In order to avoid especially long entries, when a heading has an entire chapter or section devoted to it, as, for example, chapter two is devoted to F. H. Bradley, references to page numbers within that chapter or section are for the most part excluded under that entry, except for the bold type designating the entire chapter or section.Abbreviations used throughout the book, and which are to be found compiled at the beginning of the volume, have largely been adopted in the index. An exception is the abbreviation 'R-Leibniz', which denotes Russell's book The Philosophy of Leibniz, reserving 'Leibniz' to denote that philosopher's own work.Many headings and subheadings have been followed by the name of an author or a book occurring in brackets. This is used to indicate that entries under that heading or subheading pertain specifically to that author or work. In some cases subheadings may be followed by more than one such bracketed entry, as under 'epistemology' one finds a subheading: logic and: [Moore] 148-9; [R-Leibniz] 161This indicates a discussion of logic and epistemology in the works of G. E. Moore may be found on pages 148-9, while discussion of the same subject, but in Russell's The Philosophy of Leibniz, may be found on page 161.Dates of birth (and death, where applicable) have been given, except in the case of a few current writers, for whom such dates are not readily available. The names of people who are mentioned only in the Preface have not been included in the index.
