In Australia and New Zealand, philosophy has been experiencing something of a 'golden age.' The richness of Australasia's philosophical past, though less well known, should not be forgotten. Australasian philosophy, although heavily indebted to overseas trends, includes much distinctive and highly original work. Soon after the original edition of the A Companion to Philosophy in Australia and New Zealand was published, the book's editors almost immediately embarked upon this second edition, including articles that did not make it into the first edition. In particular, articles on the following topics have now been added: Australian Aboriginal philosophy, the history and philosophy of science, and 'the Oxbridge connection.' Also, an Addendum has been added to the article on the Australian Society of Legal Philosophy. The book contains a wide range of contributions by prominent philosophers and scholars, and it includes biographical essays on selected philosophers, topics, and controversies, as well as shorter entries on associations, research centers, departments, journals, pedagogy, and international links. Recent inroads into the wider community - in primary and secondary schools, community-based forums, and 'philosophy cafes' - are also included. A Companion to Philosophy in Australia and New Zealand provides scholars and the wider community with a greater appreciation of the philosophical heritage of this region, and it will be a standard work of reference for many years to come.
