New Titles Added to CREDO Reference Collection

The CREDO Reference collection continues to gain popularity among USI’s students and faculty as a good first stop for starting many research projects.  This collection also continues to grow by adding several new titles every few weeks.  Most recently the collection added five new works, including Encyclopedia of American Studies, Encyclopedia of Cremation, New Encyclopedia of the American West, and the OECD Factbook 2010:  Economic, Environmental and Social Statistics. The fifth reference book was Meet the Philosophers of Ancient Greece and was the database’s featured title of the month.  Here’s a description of its contents.

“Ancient Greece was the cradle of philosophy in the Western tradition.  Meet the Philosophers of Ancient Greece brings the thoughts and lives of the pioneers of Western philosophy down from their sometimes remote heights and introduces them to a modern audience.  Comprising essays written by internationally distinguished scholars in a lively and accessible style, this book presents the values, ideas, wisdom and arguments of the most significant thinkers from the world of ancient Greece.
“Commencing with Thales of Miletus and continuing to the end of the Ancient Period of philosophy by way of Heraclitus, Parmenides, Protagoras, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Archimedes, Epictetus this book explores the major contributions of each philosopher as well as looking at archaeological and historical sites where they lived, worked and thought.  This book is an outstanding introduction to the world of the philosophers of Ancient Greece.”
