'In completeness of definition and range of matter, Baldwin's Dictionary far outstrips all its predecessors ... a notable event in the history of philosophical studies. A monument of patient labor and sound scholarship, and as a work of reference it is without rival in its field.'
- Philosophical Review

The aim of James Mark Baldwin's Dictionary was to present the terminology and concepts of philosophy, psychology and science 'with a fullness and authority not before undertaken'. To achieve this he engaged many of the modern world's most eminent scholars. The international board of contributors and advisers, including academics from the USA, Germany, France, Italy and Britain, reads like a Who's Who of early twentieth-century philosophy. It includes Bernard Bosanquet, John Dewey, William James, Hugo Mynsterberg, James Bonar, C. Lloyd Morgan, C. S. , Andrew Pringle-Pattison, Josiah Royce, G. F. Stout and Henry Sidgwick.

Covering an immense range of topics, Baldwin's Dictionary is a composite of 'dictionary' and 'encyclopedia', made up of vocabularies, definitions of terms, essays and articles. The Dictionary thus has an extremely wide scope, including entries on topics as diverse as anthropology, money, anaesthesia, peace, night-blindness, nihilism, and paranoia. It also gives a full and detailed treatment of topics rather than the brief descriptions that make other philosophical dictionaries less useful. Extended treatment is given in particular to Ethics, Logic, Aesthetics, Philosophy of Religion, Mental Pathology, Anthropology, Biology, Neurology, Physiology, Economics, Political and Social Philosophy, Philology, Physical Science (and Mathematics), and Education. French, German and Italian equivalents are often suggested for entries to help towards universal terminology. There is a careful apparatus of cross-reference and many helpful illustrations.

The result is a reference work unrivalled in scope, that collects the writings of some of the most influential thinkers of the start of this century.
